New Yorker Craig Bagno still gets asked if he’s a tourist and for good reason: he hasn’t left his apartment without a camera slung around his neck in almost a decade. From 2008 to 2018, he’s focused his lens to capture the light and loneliness in New York City as a way to distill moments of quietude and spaces of solitude. In his signature style, Bagno assumes the perspective of a passerby, a shadowy apparition in the crowded streets, often depicting people from behind, lending a particularly melancholy look at the world’s greatest city. With a sense of fascination for the mundane and sensitivity for the minutiae, Bagno provides an unfiltered, nuanced glimpse into the city beyond myths, lores, and fantasies in his publishing debut, New York City Anonymous, revealing the beauty in melancholy.
