Moving Walls is an online photographic exhibition sponsored by the Open Society Foundation.
BEYOND GRAND STREET, Brooklyn, New York
In late 1994, I began photographing teenagers from the Puerto Rican and Dominican communities of Brooklyn’s Williamsburg section. Williamsburg is mostly known for its waterfront area and is often referred to as the “new East Village.” Only a few blocks away, beyond Grand Street, is another world where youth face the challenge of growing up without the benefit of the area’s progressive gentrification.
