The image was taken on Liberty Island, New York City. I was standing under a large tree, facing the city’s unique skyline. There was nothing exceptional I could see through the lens until I took a single step back and framed Manhattan from this distinctive angle using the tree’s branches. That one shift transformed the whole composition of the shot, creating the memorable image you see today.
‘One Step Back’ is about how in life you sometimes need to step aside, retreat, or simply just take a step back to see the bigger picture or get a different perspective.
