When it comes to her subjects, photographer Jen Steele looks for “gravity” and “heart” above all else. If a person catches her curiosity, she is the kind of girl who will walk right up and request to take their portrait, often establishing a friendship along the way. But her offering does not end here. All of ten years and close to 1000 miles from the Midwestern state of Wisconsin where she was born and raised, Steele has established herself as a writer and stylist as well as founding her own website, Girls I Know – an online collective of inspiring and accomplished women. Here, Steele shares with RUSSH some of her most cherished New York memories captured on film. “I hope my photos give anyone looking a feeling of romance and closeness. It’s also important to me that the subject feels understood on some level and appreciated.”
