This image is an example of how I use photography to document the people around my studio at Project Row Houses in Third Ward, Houston, TX. This woman sits and reads in her Biggie shirt, near the toxic spawnsite, known as "The Mobile", a local toxic corner store. You can watch people like this deteriorate before your eyes due to the harsh realities of the difficulties of survival in a world that is rapidly changing around her.
