Leica Presents – Rescue 2: Before The Call, an intimate photo essay by Romeo Okwara of the Firemen of acclaimed Rescue Company 2 Firehouse

Join us at Leica Store New York SoHo as we present Rescue 2: Before The Call, an intimate photo essay by Romeo Okwara of the Firemen of the acclaimed Rescue Company 2 Firehouse in Bedford–Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

Of his vision for Rescue 2, Romeo says, “I want to capture what it means to be part of Rescue 2, from the ground up with the building filled with incredible character and soul, past and present.”

From the moment Romeo entered Rescue 2 he felt at home with the locker room atmosphere he is so familiar with as a professional athlete. His photography shows a sensitive, but realistic view of the daily lives and stress of firemen waiting for The Call.

Romeo Okwara is an NFL defensive end for the Detroit Lions. He played college football at Notre Dame and signed as a free agent with the New York Giants in 2016.
