New York native, Stephen Schuster is presently living in Brooklyn and working as a professional photographer and artist. "I hope that one day my photographs can be widely recognized as a historical documentation of Brooklyn's subway tunnels," says Schuster." My work is an exploration of what lurks under the surface and my photography helps me feel alive, I just hope that it doesn't kill me."
Schuster's photography is an investigation of urban environments. "These places have always held a sense of wonder and danger to me," says Schuster. "My work is about exploring different spaces, especially ones that I feel are overlooked for their aesthetic possibilities. Abandoned industry, Brooklyn's underground and night photography all fall into that category. I love to capture and explore," says Schuster "and my series of tunnel photographs are a good example of my love for the vacant and mysterious". "I'm getting my work out there so that pedestrians and straphangers alike can understand what lurks under the surface.
