East End Stories features people who live and work in the east end of Newburgh, NY within the area where the FBI conducted a major gang takedown in May 2010. The series is intended to collectively show the love, pain, hope, and resilience that lives there. The portraits and candid images feature people who are both direct and passive victims of gang violence, people who are providing programs for the city’s youth, religious leaders of the community, artists, business owners, and people who simply call it home. Limited edition prints are available by contacting the photographer directly. You can see some of the 23 images from the series below and on Glass Chord. You can order the book on CreateSpace.com.
