NYC Dept. of Sanitation

Since October of 2007 I’ve had the greatest honor any professional photographer could ask for: I’ve been the official photog for the New York City Department of Sanitation.

As to what exactly a Sanitation photographer does would be a long explanation, suffice it to say that I’ve never taken a picture of garbage.

In this gallery you will see a few images of DSNY’s snow operations, as well as a handful of the portraits of some of the heroic women and men who keep New York City alive.
