Today’s photo of the day is from Robert Sukrachand’s 2008 student award of excellence project, “74th + Roosevelt; Stories from the streets of Jackson Heights, Queens” which documents the homeless people who live in his neighborhood in New York City.
Sukrachand manages to capture these resilient people in scenes that celebrate their happiness and documents their poverty. He also made it a point to record their stories, so that each caption and the proposal give further substance to the individuals in the images.
To this day, Sukrachand continues to work on this project. You can view some of the progress he has made from his original Alexia Foundation project on his website.
