Kobie Procter debuts photography from “The New York Justice and Equality Riots and Protests of 2020” onto the walls on Myrtle Avenue.

“Photography is the celebration of the uniqueness of both our individual conditions and tribal conditions.

 I also believe the Street photographer’s jungle creed is to give voice to the voiceless thru the power of imagery.

My shots come from a place of intuition mixed with rhythm and emotion-driven by a desire to capture the energy, essence, culture, and the condition of life.

I shoot in the streets of New York City.

I shoot with the mindset that any of the images I capture could have the power to bring about a radical change in perspectives of those hoping to devote themselves to addressing the societal issues that can open us all up to understanding.

As moments unfold around me as I capture, shape them into a binary world, then deal them into multiple contemporary mediums and art-forms for maximum impact.

My methodology or approach when I shoot is kinetic. I feel to shoot. I synchronize with my surroundings as I shoot. I hit black and white shapes and forms from every angle. Each shot is a soulful scream billowing out of me like the pitchy sweet octaves of jazz in a smokey shade of blue.

I have the privilege to call attention to things that people may overlook thru the power of thought-provoking photography and righteous art.

I seek the moments and stories that are not at first obvious and are uncommon in the common flow of the everyday. Empty of expression, blank, bare, and unoccupied. I am curious about what lays behind their lives, where they have been, and where they hope to go.”
