Kramer O’Neill is a Brooklyn-based photographer, animator and editor. But he is also a wonderful street photographer creating work that feels nostalgic, yet modern, truthful, yet mysterious. His first book, Pictures of People and Things 1, was published this summer, and his second, Till Human Voices Wake Us, a series of beach and underwater photographs, will be released in Autumn. He is a founding member of the strange.rs photo collective.
I photograph within the genre of “street photography,” making work about interactions in public places. These photographs are not staged or digitally manipulated, but they are my small attempt to illuminate the mysterious within the everyday, to reach toward a surreal truth.
