We’ve been enchanted by Matt Petosa‘s work before. His artistic photographs enjoy a post-production edit to make them look almost like oil paintings and tend to focus on the smaller details of New York City. “I manipulate the images to a painterly effect,” Matt tells Creative Boom. “Yet, from a short distance, they appear like the photographs they started out as.”

Last time, his series celebrated the Big Apple’s architecture – the very elevations and the avenues that make the city so special. For his latest series, Matt zooms in on the newsstands that frequent most street corners. The places where you can grab a quick magazine or bite to eat, no matter what time of day or night.

A graduate of Fine Art from Syracuse University, Matt hopes to show the beauty, strength and colour of the world, focusing on views of everyday scenes from a trained eye. Discover more www.mattpetosa.com.
