A World In A City: Queens

13 images Created 19 Feb 2014

A captured season of my youth between the years 1999 to 2003 in this collection from St. Albans, Queens. These portraits of friends, family, and strangers explore how the familiarity of childhood has become a distant memory. Youth have become adults,boys become fathers, girls no longer play with dolls but give birth to the reality of raising a child before their "time". Living in this interstitial space - surrounded by community, prison, new life, death, school, and family - inspired me to hold on to the path that was most familiar in my work; my family friends and the city.
