R island

Roosevelt Island is a narrow island in New York City. But this place
doesn't feel like New York at all. Not many people living there, not
much happening there. Sometimes, you forget you are still in
Manhattan or even the east coast.
You feel you are in a "ghost town", but you just love it.

I born in Beijing and now living in New York. I started taking photos with an old camera from my father. I became an independent photographer since 2010. I love street and people. Photography for me is not a career, it is the passion of my life.
