Under the long tall shadow of commerce, Newberry turns his lens on a hitherto unseen pocket of New York’s nightlife. Roaming the cities darkest depths, Newberry Illuminates every speck of filth and catches every glimmer of grime, painting a portrait of truth and redemption with a palette of subversion.
Newberry’s take on his rodentine bedfellows is sure to shock and awe. Weaving through the crumbling architecture of a society trapped on a rotting island, Newberry explores themes that belie the brutality of daily life: trash, survival and death.
Drawing direct parallels from Weegee's Naked City, K.R. Newberry has found a way to reinvent sensationalism, culminating in a subliminally intimate exposé of the city's one true survivor: the rat.
