Paul Szynol has a passion for street photography in the great tradition of narrative photojournalism. He came of age in Warsaw, Poland and first came to the United States in 1984, which, as he ironically observes “was the year that New York City’s transit fare rose from 75 cents to 90 cents, 33 previously unknown Bach pieces were found in an academic library; and Canon demoed its first digital still camera.”
