To Market, To Market: Pictures from Philadelphia's Italian Market (2014)
It's the nation’s oldest Italian-American street market in continuous operation, it likes to boast. Despite tough competition from supermarkets and boutique food shops, it survives by working hard while doling out a big helping of nostalgia. In the process it has become a true people’s market, serving shoppers of every race and ethnic background. Here, caught on camera, are some of the Philadelphians keeping it alive.
London Off Guard (2010)
The crowds that swarm through the streets and tourist attractions of London serve for some people, oddly, as a sort of screen. Everyone around here, they think, is too busy, too preoccupied, to take any notice of me. So they may withdraw from the throng for a while -- perhaps to daydream or connect with a friend nearby or just take a rest, enjoying a private moment. London Off Guard records my attempts to take those moments from behind the screen into the light.
Smallfield Bangers (2008)
On a dirt track in Smallfield, a small town near London Gatwick airport, amateur “banger” drivers compete in an adult, more dangerous version of bumper cars. But the real drama is in the pits -- the tense preparations before the race, the hurried efforts afterwards to patch the cars up to race again, the sad work of carting the unsalvageable wrecks off to the scrap yard. These photographs record how drivers, crews and spectators stake all their hopes and energies in a competition that is always one step away from destruction.
