East 4th Street - Manhattan

As many people in New York know, East 4th Street in Manhattan is one of those amazing places where culture and urban life come together to blend in a beautiful mix nobody should miss. 

Some time ago I was on that street as I was asked to shoot one of the theater shows dress rehearsals to make the material for a play's promotion. I had some time to spare as I was waiting my friends' play to start so I walked down the E 4th street and made some pictures that reflect that cultural life no many people are aware of. 

If you want to know what is on just go to their websites:

Please go now and then to those websites and check what is on... more importantly, go to the theater. 


Things are not going to be easy for these three Dominicans trying to get to Puerto Rico using a Yola crossing the Mona passage. The majority of the vessels are make-shift, homemade boats poorly equipped for dangerous ocean currents. They are going to face risk of downing, dehydration, and violence. Many of them don't know how to swim and travel without life vests. 

Yoleros is a theater play written by Alex Vásquez Escaño and directed by Martín Balmaceda. The three "Yoleros" are Modesto 'Flako" Jimenez, Sully Bonnelly and Mathia Vargas

I have the honor to be invited to be part of the production team as their photographer. I was an immense pleasure to be involved in the project and I really wish that every theater company have the talent and commitment this one has. Here is the result of such work:

The play has some extra runs programmed for the rest of the year. I will be publish the date and location when I know more information about it.

Don't miss it.
