happy chinese new year . china town . two thousand and nine

Some images from the archives in honor of the Chinese New Year : At the end of 2009 I had the opportunity to travel to New York and study with Magnum Photography.  The project I worked on was in China Town.  I’ve always been fascinated with culture within culture and how they interact with each other.  I could have spent weeks exploring and discovering more about the people and lives they lived.  I’d like to go back some time and do more work on the project.


I have put together a website with my personal work here www.melissasquires.com if you’d like to see more of my personal stuff.

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.
