my hood

over the last couple of years i’ve been collecting cool pictures of inwood.  there’s so much life here and so much… idunno, man.. you just have to be here to feel what i’m talking about.  it’s loud, it’s social, it’s dirty and it’s beautiful.  kids play in the streets till the wee hours of the mornin while the adults play dominos or chill around the stoop or on lawn chairs or couches they drag into the street.  instead of sitting in front of a tv all night like an idiot, the people in my hood hang out and actually communicate with each other.  it’s hard for me to take pictures around here because people usually think i’m a cop or for some reason they don’t want their faces in front of a camera.  but people are usually cool with me shooting their kids, so i start with the kids and sometimes they’ll warm up to me.  many more to come…
