To say that the population in New York City contains a colorful cast of characters would be an extreme understatement.
By this point, almost nothing surprises us. Not even a man whose life's work has consisted of photographing 538 naked women.
Norwegian filmmaker Rolf Leer is on a mission to seek out New Yorkers from all different walks of life, and get to know them while a little better.
Leer describes the project as simply, “New Yorkers are crazy. In the most positive sense of course. No city in the world has a broader diversity- which makes it a lunatic.
Through three-minute speed interviews,WELOVENYC invites you backstage, as they are visiting many of the spicy characters in the city. One-take interviews. Three minutes. No manipulation. Lots of inspiration.”
Leer makes a point to interview subjects with a wide variety of backgrounds and lifestyles, so as to get as complete a picture of New York’s diversity as possible.
This week, Leer takes us inside the Lower East Side home of Andrew Einhorn, a photographer who abandoned the fashion scene to pursue his own project, "Happy Naked Girls", a series of nude portraits of smiling ladies.
