This project came out of a trip I took to China in 2005. I have been visiting the East Broadway section of Manhattan’s Chinatown since, making a portrait of a neighborhood.

East Broadway is a small, less visited section of  Chinatown. Many of the residents are recent arrivals from the Southeastern province of Fujian. This is the end of one journey, of trying to get here, and the beginning of another journey -- staying here and becoming an American.

At the same time this neighborhood is slowly losing it’s unique character through gentrification.
