POPE OF THE BOWERY
Leo Jacob is a New York-based photographer whose current work-in-progress showcases the spirit of his native city’s businesses amidst the economic crisis of a global pandemic. Jacob’s work captures the powerful stories of the people working to keep New York City’s restaurants, storefronts and entertainment industry alive (and thriving) while operating through the harsh restrictions due to Covid-19, health concerns and looming financial hardships & constraints.
The project, titled “WORK IN PROGRESS” is supported by Leica Camera and created through the Leica Q2 and Leica SL2 cameras.
Jacob’s series will culminate in a photobook and available at select Leica stores nationwide. For project inquiries or to share your story, contact me HERE.
