Hydrant Battles: a Celebration of Summer and Inner City Life in the Bronx

Summer and inner city life is celebrated through Giovanni Savino’s photos of kids and adults from the Bronx playing in water from open fire hydrants. He shot these images of “hydrant battles” with his iPhone which allowed him to shoot candidly and get closer to the action. Savino is based between New York City and the Caribbean and is represented by Wonderful Machine.
