Photo by myself in Chinatown, Brooklyn on Chinese New Year.
Believe it or not, there are kids in New York City. I don't photograph them a lot, usually because they're under the watchful eye of parents or I'm in a rush to get somewhere.
You see children on subways and on the streets - small, precocious creatures with big eyes and an air about them.
Kids grow up quickly in the city. Before their first birthdays, they're yabbering on the subway, or being pushed in strollers on crowded sidewalks.
By the time they're ten, they know their way around. They've seen it all. Often I see them walking alone to school or riding the subway, unaccompanied.
