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.

Inviting you to send postcards from the city, town or village where you live. So, no postcards from your holidays, please. This project will be labelled "postcard from:" and will probably exist as long as the F blog exists? Stay tuned to F - the world wide channel.
