Yesterday I was thrilled to see that the New York Times ran an article about Chris Arnade, whose work I’ve been following for the last several years. Arnade is one of the most dynamic and talented street photographers in NYC, and the bonds he forms with his subjects are so powerful and evident in his images.
While the NYT article focuses on his portraits of prostitutes in Hunts Point up in the Bronx (which is link bait, if you ask me), he’s actually been doing a much larger series on addiction within that community. You can see the broader selection from this series here. Marie Viljoen from 66 Square Feet has also written a moving account of a recent trip she took with Arnade up to the Bronx that’s well worth the read.
For more of his work, please see his excellent series on The Pigeon Keepers of Bushwick, Barbershop Brooklyn, and lots more over on Flickr. So gratifying to see Arnade get recognition for the consistently thought-provoking and moving work he does.
