City of New York

According to wikipedia, New York is the most densely populated major city in the United States. As many as 800 languages are spoken in New York, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world.
In 1993, I spent a month in New York City and vicinity and have come back several times since. This time I didn’t bring much equipment to photograph the usual landmarks and attractions, instead I just packed a 50mm prime lens, hoping to capture the faces of New York City.

I’m sad to say that I spoke only to a very few of the people you see here, but the photos show enough of their emotions that it takes only little imagination to feel their struggle.
