Caylee Cowan was warmly welcomed during her visit to New York City last week with a photo shoot set up
by yours truly, friendly urban art photojournalist, Nitro Nuri Shakoor, and thanks to the assistance and creative vision of fellow photographers Joe Amato, Jorgie Ostolaza, Ktodoma Igor, Alex Pichardo and Evan Saucier.
