"Coming Of Age" 
honors Danroy "DJ" Henry Jr., a
Pace University 
football player 
who was shot
dead by police
on Oct. 17, 2010.
Years later, the 
courts ruled that DJ died a
wrongful death. 

"Aminah's Daily Bread," honoring artist and MacArthur "Genius Grant" recipient Aminah Robinson (1940-2015), was shown on Oct. 8, 2015, at ACA Galleries, New York, at a charity auction and 85th birthday party for artist Faith Ringgold.

"Upper East Side" 

is about a woman

I photographed on York Avenue, New York City, with her

cart full of plastic

bags. Her likeness 

in shoulder pads

became a star,

but for only 30 seconds. 

Here is the video from MoMA: 

Recorded Sept. 15, 2009, in The Museum of Modern Art by "30 Seconds" artist
