THE QUEENS

 

The project deals with the immigrant communities settled in New York, along the Seven Line, the subway line that runs through Queens from Manhattan. As you know Queen is a very colorful and varied district of the big apple, each block mirroring a different origin and a different breed.

In these neighborhoods music is always on air, as subway trains running through the surface give their constant noise off: the perfect display of Queens essence. Customs and traditions of the old countries, the countries of origin, are everywhere, along with the always present American flag. That is their way to feel themselves Americans, to claim their new land not denying their roots.

The photos shows an almost hidden New York, even in the shadow of the tracks, any moment full of vitality and constant changing naturally its appearance and mood each train stop.
