Perfectly Timed Photos That Capture Surreal Coincidences in NYC

Photographer Jonathan Higbee has a natural talent for capturing moments so well-timed and rare that they seem to be completely manufactured.

Higbee's work is well recognized in the art world. In the past, he's won the World Street Photography grand price and a LensCulture Street Photography Award. His work immediately stands out for it's surreal, dreamlike nature.

"My favourite photographs are ones that reveal the unique vision and creativity of the photographer who made them; images that only that person could have possibly produced," Higbee says.

As far as photography goes, Higbee believes that the medium is voyeuristic by nature. It's all about waiting and watching for the perfect moment.

"The concept of photography as a voyeuristic medium absolutely rings true," he says. "In my opinion, the single biggest skill necessary to make strong street photography is the power of observation. If one learns how to truly be present in the moment (and take themselves out of it) step back and observe life, they can then tap into a special quality of the moment that so few have access to. This is the nature and appeal of voyeurism."
