NYC / Williamsburg / 1996

I arrived in NYC in the winter of 1995. I came to stay for a year, but I fell in love forever. On my way there, by chance, I found a cheap camera, so I started taking pictures of all the stories as I lived through them. I didn't develop them, though, or even looked at the negatives. I just kept them and brought them back with me - thousands of undeveloped photos, hidden away in a suitcase with collections of other writings, drawings and souvenirs from my past. Now, digitalized and reborn, I can share these grainy memories of something really good.
