Every single person who lives in New York probably wondered at least once why there are so many esoteric and mystical signs spread around. The little Keano flyer, which you can see in the corner of many advertisements’ frames in most subway trains, was the starting point of my journey within the community of New York’s psychics. I met about thirty psychics – intentionally avoiding the ones who practice in psychic shops - from Midtown to the Bronx going through Queens. They are Tarot card readers, mediums, palm readers, healers, etc. I found them via Google, Yelp, word of mouth, and I eventually portrayed half of the ones I’ve met.

This project aims to give an intimate look at those interesting characters and their personal world while offering the audience the opportunity to have a glance at New York from a psychic’s perspective.
