About The Artwork

I took this image while waiting to meet a friend for coffee on the corner of 34th St and Seventh Avenue. Just before the morning rush hour, I noticed this man clearing a puddle reflecting the mighty Empire State Building. Just as he was about to remove the puddle, I managed to snap this timeless moment that would have disappeared instantly. New York rain can be a memorable experience. Rainfall is common in New York City throughout the year, but it is particularly prevalent in the spring and summer months. The rain in New York can range from light drizzles to heavy downpours, creating a unique atmosphere in the city. During a rainy day in New York, the streets can become slick and shiny, and the sound of raindrops hitting the pavement can create a soothing ambiance. Umbrellas and raincoats are a common sight on the streets, and many people take the opportunity to grab a hot drink and seek shelter in one of the city's many cafes. The rain can also create some stunning photo opportunities. The city's skyline can appear even more dramatic when viewed through the misty veil of rain. The reflections of the city lights on the wet pavement can create a beautiful, shimmering effect. While rain in New York can be inconvenient at times, it can also be a unique and memorable experience that adds to the city's character.

Edwin Datoc is a fine art photographer and filmmaker who is renowned for his striking cinematic imagery and portraiture, whose images capture an often surprising and spontaneous energy in even the most reserved and difficult subjects of fashion and culture. Born in the Philippines and raised in Australia from the age of eleven, his calling for photography didn't come until in his late twenties during his frustration working as an accountant. "It was a complicated transition to becoming a photographer, knowing you are giving up the financial stability. But I realise that life is a not dress rehearsal and to pursue what you are passionate about." Edwin’s creative projects has since taken him to more than eighty countries. His appreciation and familiarity with diverse cultures reflects a unique international perspective to his work. His influences and inspiration are varied from travel, design, architecture, music, art, cinema and literature. His command of narrative working in stark locations has led to editorial assignments for Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Marie Clare, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, and Tatler. He has photographed advertising campaigns for Costume National, Esprit, L’Oreal, and has created striking films for Landmark HK, G2000, Kim Robinson Cosmetics, Agent Provocateur and Fiorucci. He is active in the fields of both fine arts and assignment work. Edwin currently lives between New York, Hong Kong and Sydney.
