Our group (Group 3) decided to capture the experience of the New York Comic Con for our audio-photo essay. This past weekend, we journeyed over to the Javits Center to catch a glimpse of the Comic Con event, which brings in thousands of fans from all over the country each year. We thought this would be an interesting place to take photos, since most of the people at the event would be dressed in costume. While observing and capturing images of the people dressed in cosplay at Comic Con, we realized how passionate the fans of all ages were about the event. The event was a non-judgment free zone for fans to come together as a group and pay tribute to their favorite character or series. Fans were more than happy to pose for pictures and often times would even reenact their character while we were taking their picture. Take a look at the photo essay we put together featuring images of the many faces of Comic Con.
Here are some of our favorite images captured at the event:
