NYC Messenger Portraits

Takuya "Tak" Sakamoto is an old school bike messenger and photographer out of the big apple. He has worked with Japan's Loop Magazine and several other publications as well. He recently added a series of excellent portraits of New York's bike messengers he's shot throughout the years to his blog. The photo's are shot in different spots within, but each retain the same wonderful inner-city aesthetic. Tak's trained eye has gained him notoriety in all circles and his work just gets better with age, just check out his blog New York Bike Dreams to see what I'm talking about. Below are a few of the portraits from the series starting with Miami's own, NYC transplant, Jenny Whaler. It was good running into you last week during BFF, now move back!
