Women of Mott Street

Chinatown is one of my favorite places to photograph. I love the the atmosphere and especially the food. Chinatown is also the closest in feeling of any neighborhood of what Manhattan was like at the turn of the last century. The hustle and bustle of the people, shops that open onto the street, the many small and unusual specialty shops. Though there is gentrification, for the most part Chinatown has changed little over the past decades. Other then the food, the people interest me a great deal. The mixture of old and young, the contrast of tradition and contemporary. For me, this is exemplified in the faces and dress of the women. Poor, well to do, and everything in between.
