Jonathan Higbee had moved to New York almost a decade ago (from Los Angeles, and Detroit before that, and Kansas City before that). By that point in his life – after moving around so much – he found the best way to get to know his new hometown was through art and creativity.
As Jonathan says, “Even though I acclimated to New York years ago (and don’t even skip a beat when a stranger bumps into me on the street or train) I continue to make photographs for “Coincidences.” Part of the way along the journey of the project, I realized the pictures in this series give me a new appreciation for life itself. How uncanny that the disparate and unrelated elements in the photographs come together for a brief, miraculous moment to create something so beautiful!
So here it is – the pack of photos, taken by Jonathan during his “coincidence hunt” – scroll down and enjoy them!
