Steve Hill Photography
BEHIND THE LENS
New York—a place full of contradictions: power, poverty, elegance, and utility merge on every street. Exciting, unforgiving, sexy, and brutal, there is so much that escapes the eye as we move through the Metropolis. This elusive complexity is the heart of Steve Hill’s photography. Looking past the picture postcard obvious, Hill avoids cliché and presents the real New York, in images full of profound love and respect for the people, places, and times of the city.In these award-winning photographs that haunt and inspire, Hill finds the soul beneath the grit and flash of the city. He finds the extraordinary in the ordinary and the shining individual among so many passing faces. Steve's images have been published world-wide (New York Times, Wine Spectator, The Daily News, New York Magazine, The Observer etc.). He trained at the prestigious École Culinaire du Cordon Bleu in Paris and spent twenty years cooking in of some of New York’s finest restaurants. He currently lives and works in Hell's Kitchen, NYC.
"Steve Hill makes photographs like BB King plays blues guitar ... clear, pure, original, and as memorable for what he does not do as for what he does." -Paul Martin
