You Are Here

The Loisaida Festival is the annual street celebration of the Lower East Side's Alphabet City community. In past years predominantly Puerto Rican, this event has changed along with the makeup of the community it serves to become a celebration of the mixed backgrounds and joint experience centered around Avenue C.

You Are Here was a joint project between Casey Britt, Lisa Ramsay, Badrul Rupak, and myself to document Loisaida 2014 by turning a storefront along Avenue C into a photo studio — and then later a mirror, by presenting the community's pictures back to them. This is my contribution to the project.
