We love that in half the photos in Michelle Groskopf’s series That Time I Spent 15 Years In NY you can’t tell that they’re taken in New York. Sure, the odd yellow taxi sneaks by, but other pictures reveal a funny, little-known side of the city. Take the shot of a man holding a metal detector casually strolling across a beach in his wetsuit and what looks like a bee-keeper’s cap, while some kids play with buckets and spades, completely oblivious to the oddball wandering past. The detail she picks out is just amazing – grazed knees, eccentric sunglasses, the stars and stripes on a pair of ill-advised pants.
2014 Mr. and Mrs. Muscle Beach is a whole other barrel of bonkers. Michelle documents an all-American body building convention; fake tan, bulging veins and diamanté-encrusted bikinis galore. She says she strives to capture “the joy of the everyday” in her work, and looking at these snaps might just make yours.
