Tribeca Dreams

So, the Tribeca Film Festival happened (April 19-30, 2017). If you’re not familiar, the Tribeca Film Festival was established in 2002, purportedly as a means of helping to revitalize the area (Triangle Below Canal Street) in the aftermath of 9/11. It’s possible this isn’t entirely true, given murmurs that the festival was in the works before Sept. 11, 2001. I don’t know for certain how much of that is true, but it doesn’t really matter. Even if the Tribeca Film Festival wasn’t the direct brainchild of those who wanted to do something culturally and economically beneficial after 9/11, I’m confident that 9/11 was surely the impetus to get the show up and running as soon as possible.

There are multiple events (both official and unofficial) held in support of and related to the Tribeca Film Festival, including the Tribeca Dreams Photowalk hosted by Street Dreams Magazine. I’m generally not one for photowalks — shooting with a large group of people just seems a bit odd to me. But I love Tribeca, so I decided to jump in…and I’m glad I did. It was a good time and I was surrounded by inspired and inspiring individuals who all, in one way or another, represent the creativity energy that keeps Tribeca (and all of NYC) buzzing. Here are a handful of my shots from that day.
