Columbia Terrace and Mystic Housing Projects, USA

Columbia Street and Mystic Projects are housing complexes of immigrant and low-income families located just outside of Boston. The sidewalks, courtyards, and stoops became a stage where I photographed the small daily dramas of the children who lived here. Playing at being grownups, full of imagination and glowing with life--the kids were as yet untouched by drugs, violence, and the hopelessness that is pervasive in these places. I often wonder what their lives have become, hoping that miraculously these children have found a way to escape the trap that is being born poor in America.
