NEW YORK CITY "STREET LIFE" PHOTOGRAPHY BY ROBERT RIVERA

Robert Rivera lives in the Bronx, writes poetry, and captures life on the streets as it happens.

"When I was young I held a gun and thought: I can point and shoot to kill. But then I held a camera, and thought: Hell yeah! I can point and shoot to thrill. My mother birthed and raised me where hip hop was born. I finished high school and it pays well. Then I went to college and "i" pay well. ....Hahaha. 
When it comes to shooting, I aim to wow myself before I wow anyone else. I enjoy shooting different themes. People have different tastes and to vary in subjects keeps me open minded and creative" Photographs were taken with an iPod5. ~Robert Rivera

POSING FOR THE CAMERA






SLUMPED IN THE SUBWAY

NO LOVE ON THE STREETS




SOMEONE SLEEPS HERE...BEDS FOR THE HOMELESS






"BENT" HEROIN


"TIRED"


LORD, I LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP...

   

MATTHEW 8-20

Matthew 8:20 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” ... Dear Friends, Though he is homeless he is still a man who probably has loved ones. No one knows what he has been through to have to use the sidewalk for a bed. There are too many reasons why some people choose to live on the streets. Let's look at this picture and reflect and be grateful to God that we have a home, a job, clothes and food on our tables. Cause it can all be taken away very quickly and unexpectedly. ~Robert Rivera

  1. ...concrete sleep
    backbones bent
    by cement
    accommodations
    hugging heavy-metal
    subway vents
    like warm dream-sent lovers...

    Thanks for these photos Robert.
