"Photographer Trevor Traynor’s global odyssey documenting the newsstands of the world is a remarkable record of newsprint as a construction medium". - Edwin HeathCote, FT Weekend.
On 7/17/12 I shot my 1st newsstand near 6th Ave & 46th St. Drawn in by the vibrant colors & organized product placement, this series began its journey providing an instant time stamp via magazine covers and headlines.
All photographs were shot on the iPhone 4s - 11promax.
