Andrew Tess's Portrait of New York
Photographer and artist Andrew Tess has an eye for capturing moments of pure romance. His snapshots of celebrities, decadent soirees, and candid behind the scenes moments, taken on a SX70 Polaroid camera, have made his a name to know among New York’s fashion and nightlife circles. Here, Tess shares a photo essay of his New York, the city where he was born and raised.
