Heat Wave – Brooklyn, New York

I found myself walking North towards the bodega on a hot and humid afternoon in Brooklyn. Sweat clung to every inch of cotton covering my body. I saw a rushing flow of water underfoot as I stepped up the curb, and panned my head right towards its source. Abruptly pivoting 90° I found a few people from the neighborhood enjoying an open fire hydrant, spraying anyone who wanted to get wet, and sometimes playing jokes on pedestrians who tried to avoid the torrent. The cops even stopped by for a quick wash, and we sent them on their way with a small volley of water balloons. I added a few videos of the antics to my SnapChat (RyanStruckPhoto) and hung around with my camera to photograph the fun.

About Ryan Struck

I am a self-taught Brooklyn based photographer. Earning a BA in History allowed me to investigate the things that have occurred in the world of which I knew nothing about. In that same spirit, photography allows me to be curious about the world and what surrounds us. I enjoy saving poignant moments through a visual medium, documenting lifestyle often fulfills this need quite nicely. I love what I do. When not at home shooting I can be found traveling in search of surf and inspiring natural lighting. My desire to capture images that help viewers imagine the instant the shutter clicked fuels my passion to combine beautiful light, people and places.
