Photo Book: New York Edited. Out of place
In side streets, remote neighborhoods, backyards and everyday life, we meet people whose sto-ries are completely unknown to newspaper headlines. Off the beaten tracks and tourist attractions, the New Yorkers are looking for their place in the city. Through twelve stories, the book New York Edited. Out of place tells us about loss, change and new beginnings.
The desire to belong to a community constantly drives people, despite adverse circumstances, to keep engaging with the ever changing environment. The search for one’s own home in the social mainstream leads to the construction of parallel worlds, to the reinvention of one's self and to the creation of places that should substitute something.
Out of place approaches through different photographic takes the lives and fates of very different people and accompanies them in the search for their place in the city.
