Updated 08/18/16
During the Spring months of 2014 and 2015 I was an Artist-in-Residence at the Carter Burden/Leonard Covello Center for the Aging, at 312 East 109th Street, in East Harlem.
I ws gven a studio in the building and worked on a series of collages (about Art History).
On my breaks and my travels to and from the studio, I took photographs on the streets I travelled.
These were shot with a small Leica D-Lux on the 1:1 setting (Square.)
