The Tenderloin _R012260


I live in a city with millions of people, and I can walk down the street and find the one person having “their” moment. We all need that moment to let go. You can’t help it when it’s going to come. You can’t wait to commute home and let go. It grabs you from within. All you need to do is step aside, hold yourself, and let it release.

      1. There are so many people living here now Lois. Too many don’t give a damn. It’s a struggle. No neighborhood is left untouched by gentrification. My neighborhood is beginning to move quickly. Today in the news, the Red Hook area of Brooklyn is not being sited for major highrise condo development. Is it being slated to be an extension of Battery Park City. Red Hook is historically a workingman’s neighborhood. Once home to longshoreman who worked the docks of Brooklyn. For years now families have moved in and it has become a nice quiet neighborhood. There is a large public housing area. Bars, restaurants, playgrounds. Shane.

  1. I am absolutely inspired by your work! May I ask what type of camera you use for these? Your portraits are so intimate, I would imagine you use smaller lens/gear as to not be intrusive. Thank you!

    1. Thanks for your comment Kim!

      I use different cameras, but mostly a Ricoh GR. It is quite small and will fit into a coat pocket. I’ve learned over the years that the smaller the better. Often times I do find myself in situations or areas where a full size camera would be a hindrance and just not welcomed.
