Entry Description

Most of my documentary series that I have done in the past has brought to remote places. This year I wanted to focus on the ever changing landscape that is the five boroughs of NYC. Growing up in Brooklyn has afforded me the chance to see how quickly things change here. I wanted to showcase a thing of beauty about NYC, the beaches in the summer bring such a variety of characters.
