Sharing Scenes From the Streets of Milwaukee

“#Hellomynameis Jarvis Lawson (@lurkhard1), and I am a 24-year-old photographer based out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Being from such a small town has made me who I am today. No one knows anything about where I live, and popular pictures are often from bigger cities. If I make somebody feel like they should’ve been in Wisconsin — or wish they were in the place I took the photo — I feel like I’m doing the right thing.

I started photography two years ago. I remember when I first started shooting with my iPhone 4S, my girlfriend would drive me to the airport to catch airplanes, and all that ridiculous stuff that a lot of people wouldn’t do. She would sit there for hours just watching me shoot planes with my little phone. That’s when I knew she was a keeper.”
