591 Exhibition - Marc Frohwirth

My Own NYC
I guess I've known this city for ever. As many people, even before having slightly touched its asphalt, I already had my own New York : A city coming from songs and movies, the city of my own American dreams and of my childhood's superheroes …- Marc Frohwirth

Yesterday a photographer from St Petersburg and today Marc living in Paris presenting "his" New York City. It is a pleasure to be able to introduce photographers from all around the world. 591 Photography is an international project aiming to bring people who love photography together. Enjoy Marc Frowirth's exhibition from the great big apple.
