An accomplished media professional, Gregory Joseph Foster, Jr. calls New York City home. He sees New York in color and in black and white.
Foster says, “there’s color in the people – myriad races, creeds, origins, religions and political thought. It’s in the spectrum of spoken languages, celebrated cultural norms, and integrated daily lifestyles that make New York’s brilliant pallet.
The color is found in the noise of darting yellow taxi cabs; the rattle of silver-brown subway cars snaking underground and high above the streets; it’s a million sampled colors in the food served by street vendors under red, white and blue umbrellas; and in the black and white smoke bellowing from mammoth power plants.
The test to understanding the world is to understand New York. It’s being able to put all the colors and all the blacks and whites down on paper with great copy, design, and composition.
