Stunning Photography from New York based Photojournalist / Cop / Animator Antonio Bolfo. After studying animation at the Rhode Island School of Design Antonio worked on projects for Playstation & Guitar Hero. He left the field after loosing interest in the office environment & went looking for ‘street-level experience’. Antonio joined the NYPD in 2006 and began documenting his work with the Police Department in 2008 and 2009.
“It was a hard job emotionally and physically,” he said. “To get the stress off, I would use photography. I would never let it interfere with my police work.”
He now works full-time as a Photographer with Getty Images. Other project of Antonio Bolfo include the aftermath of the Earth Quake in Haiti, mass dumps of Cite Soleil in Port-au-Prince and grave diggers of Ti Tanyen, Haiti. He is currently working on a wildlife project in Asia.
