Theres so much happening here right now, and a lot of it is good. Buffalo is a city that many people once wrote off, but we’ve been getting a lot of attention lately. Travel + Leisure just named us America’s favorite city, our restaurant scene is exploding, we have amazing artists and museums, and people are finally starting to make some noise about how much they love this city. We’re not perfect, and we’ve got a long way to go, but its amazing to see so many people so excited about what’s going on here lately.
But the best part?
On that note I’m so excited to share this small selection of portraits from a recent series I shot for Buffalo Spree that features some of the key personalities in Buffalo’s style, music, design, and art communities. These are just a few of the people doing their small part to make this city amazing again. Be sure to visit Spree’s site to see the rest of the collection.
