Axel Morin’s New York Photos

For his latests photo series “Once upon a time in America,” Axel Morin evokes the gritty summer atmosphere of Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx once portrayed in movies, music and magazines. The 29-year-old French photographer traveled through the boroughs during the summer of 2015, snapping a stunning set of images that harken back to a less gentrified New York. Speaking with Dazed, Morin explains, “I like to analyze the street, immerse myself in new environments, and understand these moods through my work.” See more of his photos at Dazed.
