Every Saturday we select a photo from our Flickr pool and feature it right here

Hannah Mattix is a 24-year-old New York-based photographer originally from Baltimore, but now a proud long-time Harlemite. Hannah has shot for New York Magazine, The New York Observer, Time Out New York and Prefix Magazine to name just a few.

The photo above was taken in the West Village. "I feel that it defines New York: "The Pigeon Man" sits on a bench in Washington Square Park, talking to people and letting pigeons sit on him," Hannah says. "He's scratching his face nonchalantly as if this is completely normal, which for him, and us New Yorkers, it is."

Currently Hannah is working on a  photo project on sex trafficking that will lead her to Bangladesh, Frankfurt and Hong Kong. Her cameras of choice are her Canon 5d Mark II and her grandfather's vintage Nikomat.

To see more of Hannah's work check out her site and blog.
