Kordas moved to New York in 2014, and since then he continues documenting the diversity of the Big Apple in pictures. NYC subway for this photographer is like a different, smaller city with its own ecosystem that offers such a huge diversity in a relatively small territory. His favorite subjects are couples, kids, lonely-looking people, and those who are deep in their thoughts. Luc photographs them in black and white to honor the classic photography of the early 20th century, resulting in fascinating and dynamic images that emphasize emotion rather than the environment.

I once spent over an hour underground, on the Q from Brooklyn, then the R, then the 3... to take tourists to the Museum of Natural History. When we emerged from underground, there was huge snowflakes falling. HUGE. It was absolutely magical. And so completely NYC. And this reminded me of that moment.

Well... I guess if Michael Jackson's ghost was going to come back and inhabit the body of a living soul it's likely to be the body of a little boy.
