Great Photographs by a Purchase College Journalism Student

Stephen Hazlett, a student in the Purchase journalism program, recently had his photogrpahs published on a blog called Uptown Collective. The photographs are gritty and bold. He seems to be able to get right up into his subject to shoot. Here’s how he describes his approach in the interview on the blog:

“Someone once asked me if the people I choose to photograph are in some ways a reflection of myself. I thought about it for a while, and I think there’s a lot of truth to it. Whether it’s someone I wanted to be or who I am today, I can see the connection. I’m a bit of a loner, when I go out and take pictures I wander around the city for hours. I’m only 24 but through the troubles in my life, I can see the connection in the tired faces of the aged and the homeless, wandering through the city just like me.”
