A Long Walk with a Short Lens.
This project aims to publish a hardcover book of social documentary photographs taken on Broadway, not the theater district but the 13 mile long street that runs through the entirety of Manhattan. The collection is a meditation on the city's diversity and the tolerance that holds it together.

When I first walked Broadway from the north, heading south through neighborhoods that slowly became more & more affluent it felt like a rags to riches story; the American Dream. But when traveling from the south and Wall Street heading north, I saw the great divide, the one percenters, the have and have nots… The same street traversed and viewed from opposite directions presented two completely different points of view, two different metaphors and there were many more, so many they all began blur each other into obscurity and what then emerged, What I saw, that story Broadway told me! was one of diversity - beautiful, original I LOVE NEW YORK diversity.
Risks and challenges
I’ve taken thousands of pictures which I’ve periodically edited down, however I have not had a chance to edit the last 6 months of work yet. I will get to them once the project is green lighted with your support. I mention this just incase some of the pictures featured in this promotion don't make the final cut.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
