Luis, Noah, Chris, Jason, Elian, Brody, and Pat have a presence. From the depths of Queens Village they have an uncanny ability to shift the vibe of an area just by standing in it, or as others like to say, piss people off at Braddock Park. They are seen as delinquents, dropouts, hoodrats, and all types of names that we can think of. What’s lost in this is that these people—my friends—are human. They have dreams, aspirations, wants, needs, likes, and dislikes just like the rest of us. This project brings my friends and myself into the spotlight. It shows that there’s more to us than what you see on the surface.
