Many of the images in the exhibition were taken on the streets of New York, where Kattelson captured his subjects in the gritty urban environment. His portraits often show a moment of introspection or contemplation.

As Sy Kattelson states, “I try to be as unobtrusive as possible, looking for those moments when people are focused in on themselves. And I try to find settings where this inwardness is contrasted by the dynamics of the city, by taxi cabs rushing past, by advertisements, the perspective of the street, and by the other people in the same space, everyone in their own thoughts.”
