Timothy McGurr, known professionally as 13thWitness, has established a world-renowned reputation for bringing the world into dynamic focus. From the crisp angles of buildings, a man sleeping on the subway, to the neon glow of a diner—no matter their subjects, McGurr’s images command attention. With a fresh perspective and an eye for composition and light, he creates art where others have yet to see it. A native New Yorker, he can usually be found shooting the streets and cityscapes of Brooklyn or Manhattan--either at night or at the perfect daylight hour--and with the aid of either his swift feet, his boisterous SUV, or a harness in a helicopter. A true journeyman at heart, he’s traveled the world over several times, creating photos and videos for heavy hitters like Beyoncé, Drake, Kanye West, the NY Knicks, Cypress Hill, John Mayer, New Era, SONOS, Nike, Converse, and Jordan Brand. In addition to his stacked client list, 13thWItness' vast reach on Instagram is a testament to the strength of his work. With the perfect blend of talent, hustle, and grit, 13thWitness reminds us to open our eyes and embrace our surroundings at all times.
