In New Yorkers Daniele captures the unique mix of emotions that his subjects feel as they are photographed. Is it caution, diffidence, astonishment, or perhaps pride? Daniele doesn’t seem to want to give us a definitive answer to these questions, but rather fix the atmosphere of a singular encounter with clarity and authenticity.
