Itsfor Gotham

Street/Brand Photographer

New York City based ItsForGotham has been drawing from a unique brain condition known as synesthesia since late 2012. Using this subconscious ability to "see" sounds and "hear" colors has led to a development of a unique approach to capturing and evoking any given emotion. Pursuing themes such as neighborhood violence, corruption, silence and human psychology, he began pursuing the craft more seriously in his free time and would later develop a certain technical ability to shoot and edit various urban landscapes all within apps on the iPhone 5 and Canon DSLR equipment. Months of persistence, patience, and meetings landed him the opportunity to became a brand photographer for Nike and Jordan brands, and he hasn't looked back since.
