Earlier this month before a girl named Sandy came along, I had an opportunity to head to New York as part of a press junket and seeing that I’ve never travelled to NY before, I decided to extend my stay for an extra ten days to do some extra work, catch up with some friends and explore as much of the city as I possibly could. With my internal dialogue screaming “#YOLO!!”, I embarked on my first trip to The States with two main objectives; squeeze as many adventures into my trip as possible and take photos of everything with my new Canon that I just started using. With the help of Eastpak, I’ll be sharing some of the photos I’ve brought back from New York. When was the last time you did something for the first time?
Over the period I was in NY I caught up with a few friends but also met up with other New Yorkers that I have never met before. One of these characters was visual artist Lamour Supreme, best known for his work with Mishka. He was signing autographs at the Mishka stand at this year’s New York Comicon so he managed to get me into the convention. I spent a few hours wandering around the James-Jarvits Center taking photos of the attendees, some put in more effort than others but there was no shortage of characters in attendance. Here are some of the photos. FYI I was at some wild party in the Lower East Side the night before (can’t share those photos unfortunately!) and had no sleep so the camera’s image stabilisation was working overtime that day.
Eastpak began making backpacks way back in 1952 for the Pentagon.
