From a rough phone ap translation from the original french text: Result of seven years of investigation, "Urban Cave" plunges the reader into the lives of Chuck, Lisa or Geo, all residing in the New York pavement. Railway tunnels, in disused buildings, on the banks of the Hudson River, they found refuge in these caves and urban living, some for over twenty years. The camps arise between shadow and light into the lens of the photographer. Feeding, bathing, earning a few dollars by collecting cans, sometimes through prostitution, but also loving and protecting against attacks ... Andrea Star Reese makes, through her images and the many testimonies homeless dignity to these invisible citizens. • O.T. "Urban Cave" Andrea Star Reese,

The Urban Cave is a story about the resilience and humanity of people who live unsheltered on the other side of conventional society. It is about a group of individuals and the full spectrum of their lives, rather than just their deprivations. The images are in response to the beauty of a place, a people, and the dignity, determination, and perseverance reflected in their culture.
The train tunnel has been evacuated, the Batcave has been sealed off and the people dispersed but The Urban Cave photo book will preserve the story of these displaced people, the unusual beauty of the home they made and the strength and determination with which they lived.
By backing The Urban Cave you will help to document this unique and recently dispersed community that survived for more then two decades under the streets of Harlem.
