Faces of addiction

March 5, 2013

Photographer Chris Arnade has been following the stories of addicts in Hunts

Point neighborhood, the poorest in all

of New York City, for several years. Of this compelling documentary project, he says, "What I am hoping to do, by allowing my

subjects to share their dreams and

burdens with the viewer and by

photographing them with respect, is to

show that everyone, regardless of their

station in life, is as valid as anyone

else."
