Roon is a prolific young photographer who leaves his house when it’s still dark outside to capture the quiet landscape of New York at sunrise. He was brought to my attention by one of our shooters, Robbie, and I’ve followed his work closely ever since. Roon’s Instagram reads like a visual diary, captured while exploring every neighborhood and nook and cranny in the City – from shelters constructed beneath bridges, to birds-eye views of Chinatown, and candid rooftop portraiture, to name a few.
Roon was cool enough to swing by Beautiful Savage Studio and tell us what it was like to find his voice. And, he’ll be heading out this season to capture some street style at NYFW. Stay tuned.
