Emmanuel Rosario | NY

I am a photographer who specializes in capturing raw, authentic moments that invoke a sense of nostalgia.

Inspired by the open road and my own nomadic nature, my photographs are deliberately cinematic, and reveal friends in the act of escaping from their regular lives into newly enticing and perilous modes of existence. I take inspiration from people who choose to live outside the conformity of mainstream society and I seek to capture personal moments I would like to remember.  Humble adventures rooted in poignancy provide an intimate documentation of the pursuit of unburdened freedom.

I was born in 1989 and grew up in Harlem NY. I never had any formal photography training and I am mostly self-taught. My primary training has been on the job as a photo-assistant in NYC for over 5 years, where I have regularly assisted photographers Sebastian Kim and Gilles Bensimon amongst other talented fashion and commercial photographers.

I am currently based in NYC
