invited guest (docu 08): Kevin C. Downs




This work is of the Chinese New Year's parade in New York's Chinatown. A community that was devastated after 9/11 and is slowly bouncing back. They are part of a series of ongoing projects I am working on about the disenfranchised working class of New York City and their struggles to survive in a hostile environment that is ravaged by high rents, high cost of food and lack of services. In my projects, I try to always show the dignity of the people I am shooting and make you feel that you are in their presence and you can hear them share their stories of their life with you.
