It ain't where you're from, it's where you're at
I created the series, ‘It Ain’t Where You’re From It Where You At’ to document places that were pivotal to my upbringing on the Lower East Side of New York City. LaGuardia Projects, World Trade Center, Pathmark and the Educational Alliance are just a few of the locations were I received my education. One day while in NYC for the weekend I decided I needed to tell my story in a visual dialogue. I jumped in a taxi and retained him for 3 hours so I could shoot the series. It was a trip down memory lane and very fulfilling for me to capture what’s left of my old neighborhood.
