Hey, my name is Ramsey and I’m seventeen years old. I attend West Bronx Academy for the Future. I was born in the Bronx but my parents are originally from the Dominican Republic. When I was in my sophomore year, my teacher pushed me to do the Youth Insights program. It was a great opportunity, the kind that you can’t just let go of.
To me art is everyday things that you see, touch, taste, and do in life. My favorite artist is Gustave Caillebotte because I love his oil painting, Paris: A Rainy Day (1877). I have many interests but my biggest one of all is photography. I also like studio art and art history, but what inspires me about photography is sight as well as New York photographer Brandon Stanton, who has a page on Facebook called Humans of New York. In the future I hope to become a freelance photographer.
