Photographer Amani Willett claims that "In photography, as well as on the street, there is always the possibility of seeing the world anew." The contemplative artist proves this to be true in an ongoing project titled "Street," where, through her pictures, she explores the nuances and vibrancy in the day-to-day life of a New Yorker. The variation in expressions and situations indicates the importance of taking a step back from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to make meaning of it all.

A particularly powerful feature of Willett's work is the candid nature of her photographs. Her compositions and subjects appear very organic and sincere. She is able to transform the mundane motions of life into sacred and reflective pieces of art. For the most part, the series contains feelings of frustration and outrage, and challenges the viewer to questions the solemn expressions of her subjects' faces.
