photo essay . china town

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


I want to thank Alessandra Sanguinetti for her insights, Magnum Photo and milk studio for being such gracious hosts.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
