New York Fashion Photographer Gives Back with Fine Art Prints

Fashion and beauty photographer Andrew Day, who sold everything he owned just to cover a flight to iconic New York City in his early days, recalls his last day on the job before we go in all in a COVID-19 “global meltdown” – February 12, 2020.

“I had just finished the beauty shoot for Maybelline with Michael Kors,” Day recalled, “and I remember walking off set and having a weird feeling about the growing concern about the coronavirus and ‘looking forward to being isolated at home. I had a lot of big shootings on the books for the rest of February and most of March. One by one, however, Day says they all ended up being delayed and eventually cancelled.

With what seemed like no work on the horizon and looking for ways to give back to the city he loves most, Day started an art print initiative, A Piece of New York City, to give back. at New York’s COVID-19 Relief. efforts, with 20% of proceeds going to NYU Langone Hospital.

“It’s a creative way to help others and give back with a piece of New York in return. My wish is to share the spirit and hope of New York City that is in all of us here .

“Our initial goal was to raise $5,000,” says Day, “but we’re confident we can go way beyond that. New York City prints for COVID-19 relief can be ordered here.
