James Prochnik

James Prochnik is a Brooklyn-based photographer who explores places where different people, cultures, histories, and environments meet, mix, and energize one another. James’s practice is as a wanderer, searching for encounters and moments that celebrate the grace of, and wrestle with, the predicaments of the social and environmental landscapes he photographs. James teaches photography for StrudelmediaLive and shares his passion for photography with The NYC Photo Community — a web-based resource James founded to promote NYC-based photographers, events, exhibitions, and opportunities. James’s photography has been featured in The New York Times, Lenscratch, and Humble Arts Foundation, and exhibited in the US and Europe.
