Chinatown Project ... It's Just Getting Started

At the end of my 2013 Chinatown Project year, I came to realize how little I had actually documented in that year. That is to say... I don't think a year was long enough to really photograph and document the essence of Chinatown.

So here I am, 7 months after "finishing" photographing for my Chinatown book and I'm still itching to go out there and photograph.

This time around, I want to meet more people. Be bolder. Be fearless. Be #tangible. 

Also, I think I will be taking this project to... well, at least another year... or for that matter, I think it's really an on-going project that I will be working on for the next few years. I think over a few year's time we'll be able to see more of the changes and the shifts that may occur and also I'll have more photographs to have to document this place we call Chinatown. 

Here are a few I've taken recently:

 The imagery of the chinese writing against the newspaper blocking out the windows made for an interesting dissonance in this photograph. At least I think so.

 Here I try to use the window to not only show what's ON the window but also what's reflected. The reflection, in essence, becomes the image.

 It was a sunny day and I really wanted to make use of the shadows.
