Looks from New York City

I will never forget all our moments, all the good times growing up, all our NY rides, late night walks in the Village, fake tattooes, al dente pastas, hugs, kisses, travels, bus rides, airport moments everything was always amasing, cause i was with you. My first trip to NYC with out you my daddy and i got the Blues in every street, wish you could be here for late rides around the city and goodnight kisses.

The world we travel is not big enough to tell u.. I love you 24/7, 365.

Our Chrønicles 16007km away is not an easy jøurney, but follow it live on instagram @thechaoschronicles , much more amazing moments to come.


I am enjoying every moment of my 11 days left in New York. Every step is suppose to bring me a step closer from home, but I know since long time my home is right were I’m at. New York your full of magic, art, love, skyscraper, garbedge, people, memories, parks, shops, rats, restaurants, friends, taxis, bikes, delies, room with a view, room with no view, avenues, and so much more.

If Spike Lee what the director of the movie of my life, he would have to me to say “Fuck you” * but here I’m the director so fuck Spike Lee. New York I love you.

* a reference to the “Fuck you” scene of the 25th hour Spike Lee movie, one of my all time favorite.

You can also find many great photography of New York (and more) in the LIFE Archives 

This post was suppose to be an introduction to Jacob Riis‘s photography work from the 19th century using as subjects the deploring sanitary and health conditions in the New York tenement… I discovered his work trough a great book called ”How the other half lives” i happened to posses an old edition of the book with very fine printings! But… I change my mind and decided to show an other face of the city, more underground; at the time were graffiti and vandalism were at their apogee. (Some photos are dated from the 20’s but what did you expect i’m a vintage lover ; ) )

Enjoy dear Followers

Ce post était supposé être une courte introduction au travail de Jacob Riis. Photographe americain de la fin du  du 19 ème, ayant pour sujet principal les conditions de vie des immigrés et la classe moyenne dans les bidonvilles New Yorkais.. J’ai découvert ses photos à travers un livre intitulé ”how the other half lives” qui est une approche journalistique de la situation de vie de l’époque. Mais … j’ai changé d’avis et décidé de montrer une autre facette de la ville qui ne dort jamais; un aspect plus underground, a l’époque ou le graffiti et le vandal était a leur apogée. (Certaines photos sont datées des années 20 mais qu’espériez vous je suis une incorrigible amoureuse du retro! )
