Cruising the streets of your ‘hood is the best way to spend an afternoon (if you’ve got the weather on your side that is) –popping in to your favourite shops, eavesdropping in the park and jamming at the bus stop is pure bliss. Ricky Powell is definitely a man of the streets and this idiosyncratic character comes to life in Will Robson-Scott’s new film, shot roaming the streets of New York’s West Village.
In the 1980s and 1990s Ricky photographed the biggest stars around including Cindy Crawford, The Beastie Boys and Keith Haring and his passion for photography remains undiminished although now he turns his lens on the streets he knows so well. This is ten minutes very well spent.
