Me and Banksy

I became a fan of Banksy during my time in London and always thought it was more thought provoking then interesting. So when he decided to come to NYC for a month and produce a piece of art a day for the “Better Out Than In” project I knew I would hop on the subway and takes some photos of his work. Here are some of my fav pics. Thanks for a taking a look. Cheers

Hello world!

Welcome to my first post, so excited to be part of the blogging world. Let me start by introducing myself, Lisa Fernandez, a visual journalist getting my MA in International Journalism at City University in London. Over the next year I’ll be studying away as well as enjoying the city and some traveling through Europe. And who knows what kind of things I’ll be getting into, but one thing is for sure it will be one heck of a ride. So thank you for taking this visual journey with me and as my Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist teacher, John H. White, would say “Keep in Flight.”

Oh by the way just to keep you coming back for more here are some pics to enjoy.
