In October I was accepted by Magnum Photo to come to NYC and workshop for a week.Â I spent most of the time shooting in China Town. Â New York City being separated by burroughs and regions is really interesting to me.Â China Town, whatever city you find it in, is like another world and I wanted to explore that.Â Here are a few images from the series, you can see more at:Â melissa squires photography : documentary
I want to thank Alessandra Sanguinetti for her insights, Magnum Photo and milk studio for being such gracious hosts.
