An observer, documenter, artist and more, John Battaglia captures the innards of urban cities so candidly and genuinely, that I understand why he doesn't feel comfortable labeling what it is that he does as simply photography.

Working predominantly (if not exclusively) in black and white, John Battaglia seems to live in a real-life Gotham city. These images are taken in places like Chicago and New York. See the featured gallery to get a glimpse of Battaglia's collection.
