The Talkhouse have shared a photo essay of images captured by New York City-based filmmaker and street photographer Jay Giampietro over the course of November 8th and the early hours of November 9th.
“This was the strangest night of all time in this city. I’m in shock. I didn’t realise when I was shooting this stuff that I was documenting the triumph of a kind of people I didn’t think existed in New York.
There’s one guy called ‘Spiritual reckoning,’ who is one of the wildest characters I’ve ever seen in my life. I had tried to get a picture of him a few years ago but he freaked out and I’ve been on the hunt for him ever since. He was stomping around, eating Ding Dongs and downing Yoo-hoo and screaming vicious religious non sequiturs, ‘Trump is in charge. People are only gonna be allowed to have one kid, only allowed to have one pet.’ Really glad to have captured him.” – Jay Giampietro

About The Talkhouse:
Artists talk about their own work all the time, but they rarely get to talk about other people’s work. That’s what the Talkhouse is all about: smart, distinguished artists from the worlds of music and film, of all genres and generations, writing about the latest releases. And there’s a twist: the artist who’s being written about is encouraged to respond to the piece. The idea is to promote dialogue between creators who may never have interacted otherwise. Talkhouse readers can have a ringside seat to this unique exchange, or they can join the conversation too, in our moderated comments section.
