The images from the Chinatown Series were taken during a critical period of my years living in New York.  I explored the areas below Canal St. and east of Broadway down to the river, and saw the multitude of immigrant lives going through their ways in this world so far apart, geographically and mentally, from their previous ones.  And yet they survive, and perhaps thrive, as the strong always do, and live in contradiction to the social norm.  These "Morning" images depict the exciting first rays of light dawning upon the too often grim streets of lower Manhattan.
