The 609 Project

If you come to my door, I just might photograph you.

My apartment is always bustling with interesting characters. Friends. Neighbors. Family. And others who help make life around here just a little bit easier. So I decided to photograph them in black and white for a period of six weeks. Each shoot took 5 minutes or fewer. These are their stories.
