Finding Common Ground on the Streets of Brooklyn
Photographer and PDNedu contributor Amy Touchette was recently featured in The New York Times for an ongoing body of street photography shot on her iPhone. Touchette’s work depicts the diversity of Brooklyn’s streets in Bedford-Stuyvesant and Williamsburg, but points more to what we all have in common than how we differ. She writes on her Instagram: “Everyday I seek evidence that we do wholly echo each other despite our myriad surface differences—that we do have connections, far and wide, including an appreciation for the unique—and every day, much to my deep delight, I find that evidence.”
A few images from Touchette’s “Street Dailies” series are below, and more can be seen in the gallery “What’s Universal in All of Us” on The New York Times.
