Photography and Text by Merlyn Bucio, as part of NYC Salt

My name is Merelyn Bucio. I am 17-years-old. I’ve lived in NYC almost all my life. I love what the city has to offer, from the sunset cutting between the sky scrapers to the man in his underwear on rollerskates. Rarely people take the time to see it all, and I want to show them, through my lens, what they might miss on any given day in this crazy city.

NYC Salt is a non-profit photography program for inner-city teenagers in New York City. Their mission is to engage, inspire, and empower NYC teens by providing them with professional-grade visual communication skills. The salt reference reflects their hope that the program will flavor and preserve the communities it serves. Learn more about them in our introduction article: http://bokeh.jjie.org/youth-report-bokeh-will-publish-the-work-of-nyc-teens/
