Coping with residual exhaustion today from yesterday’s ten miles, I wandered close to my neighborhood. It’s lovely to photograph and truly see the sights around me on a daily basis.
One person on both walks since my News 12 story aired on Sunday has recognized me. It’s a great comfort when the physicality of this work becomes difficult. It means the world, actually.
Today I met Colleen in Bed Stuy. We talked for awhile about gentrification and the future of Brooklyn. I sympathize with the lifelong residents whose homes are now unaffordable to them. My hope is that in some small way perhaps my work will give them a voice as their lives change.
