Haunted and Hallowed

2014

I shot these images during a morning walk in autumn.

Harlem was originally a Dutch village, it is named after the city of Haarlem in the Netherlands. Harlem's history has been defined by a series of economic boom-and-bust cycles. Nowadays, and since 1990, Harlem's renascence has made the neighborhood a preferred destiny and its population has grow almost 20%

People that were born and raised in Harlem see this renascence with skepticism. Some of them are actively protesting against it. Others seem to be just waiting.

This is a portrait of the latter.
