“Another Day in Paradise” is the name of another great photo project by Mike Mellia. After the unexpected passing of his father at age 62, he started to work on this series. He began creating cinematic scenes of places around New York City, which were reminiscent of his father’s life. Another Day in Paradise is more about unsettling locations than Manhattan’s huge skyscrapers and famous places. These surroundings unveil a cold and strangely beauty, just like stills of a movie. Each image of the series seems to tell a story about another day in paradise.
