I’m Joel Zimmer, born in Canada and based in Brooklyn, New York. When I’m not out making photographs I work in Manhattan as a front end developer - I have a passion for user interfaces.
All the images and text you see on this site is my own. I make photos with a Nikon D7000 and have set up a dedicated gear page if you are curious what other cameras, lenses, and software I use to make the photos you look at on this site.
I’ve been developing a “365 project”, where I take a photograph every day, since September of 2008. I take photographs of what I see as I walk through the city, with a focus on capturing specific moments as I experience them. I shoot everything from typography to street art to the city’s inhabitants.
In addition to this site, you can follow along with me on other social networks too!
If you want to support this site, I have prints available for sale online.
If you want to buy large prints, license my images, or commission any other work, please contact me directly.
My photos have been featured online at The Atlantic’s What America Looks Like Blog, The Consumerist, Gothamist, Jezebel, Curbed, Brownstoner, and For the Love of Brooklyn; they’ve also been spotlighted on Radar many times. Tumblr’s staff blog recommended my work on a Tumblr Tuesday post as well.
If you have any questions or comments about anything on my site, or anything photography related, feel free to contact me - I love hearing from people and I try to answer as many questions as I can.
All the photos on this site have been taken by me, so please source them correctly.
