Baraty is a Brooklyn based photographer, who was an engineer before pursuing his passion for photography full time. This series, called “Intersection” clearly reflects an interest in the geometries of the city, ranging from the patterns of crosswalks from above, the dotting of umbrellas on pedestrian plazas, to the unique angle the Manhattan grid forms with Broadway. Like other rooftopping photographers, he shot these by daringly leaning over the edge of buildings.
