downtownfrombehind (DFB) is a photographic series capturing subjects riding their bike from behind on some 200+ streets, avenues and lanes below 14th street in New York City.

The result is an environmental portrait for each street and subject with a goal to highlight a set of individuals, emerging and established, each uniquely contributing; culturally, socially and physically, to make this part of the city what it is today.

The project has been widely covered in the press, from New York Times, Huffington Post, Coolhunting, Vogue, Nylon Magazine and many blogs (thankyou).

Subjects photographed to date include industrial designers, architects, creative directors, restauranteurs, entrepreneurs, hoteliers, artists and academics.

WAVERLY PLACE, Brooke Coffey, Fashion Photographer and First Assistant for Downtownfrombehind.

Tanned all year round, Brooke Coffey (tries) to live in New York, but really the best place to catch her is LAX or JFK en-route to The Caribbean, most frequenting Turks & Caicos, St. Barts and sometimes Anguilla. She was spotted in the Tuileries Paris last week, then two days later popped up in Berlin. I think she is in New Orleans today? She’s a Photographer and First Assistant to fashion photographer Greg Kadel. You can see Greg’s (and her) work in the pages of Numero, Vogue or LOVE magazine most months. She likes cats, see her pet cheetah. Best travel tips - Xanax and Bose. Best hideout when back in NY - the satellite garden on her roof. Best coffee - Saturdays NYC on Crosby Street. DFB.
