“Puddle Jumper” Photography by Matthew Cortellesi
I’ve been on a binge watch of “Human Planet” this week. Not sure how I missed it in 2011 when it came out, but it is certainly anthropologically addictive. The program covers humans living in the most extreme conditions from icebergs to the high plains of Tibet. Most interesting perhaps is the final segment which focuses on cities. 3 billion of us reside in unnatural environments which may in fact be the most challenging conditions.
Explorer Matthew Cortellesi braves the streets of New York with his Galaxy phone to reflect on the state of the planet. His brilliant photography is taken from a fresh angle through puddles in Union Square. You can follow his feed on instagram matthew_cortellesi or message him to snag a marvelous 15″ X 20″ print.
