Brooklyn Gang Series - 1959

Bruce Davidson, the iconic photographer known for his pictures of the New York City subway, The Dwarf, East 100th Street, and the Brooklyn Gang, also photographed the street gang called the Jokers, of which Bengie was the leader (last photo). video link

Davidson is mainly interested in documenting the struggles and triumphs of people as they go through their lives - the American Dream laid bare.

"My pictures are not escapes from reality, but a contemplation of reality, so that I can experience life in a deeper way."

If I am looking for a story at all, it is in my relationship to the subject - the story that tells me, rather than that I tell. ”

“ Before I went vegetarian, I did not like broccoli and cauliflower, I had never tasted avocadoes, never thought about mixing in nuts and seeds with my food. Never really appreciated the sweetness of fruits and orange veggies.
Before I went vegan, I had never experimented with dates and peanut butter, never realized that dark chocolate is so much tastier than milk chocolate and so much more satisfying. Never knew how ice cream and yummy cookies can be made out of a bunch of over ripe bananas, which you got for free. Never guessed how magical cashews are and how they can be turned into cheesy sauces or dips, or that almonds make the best white crumbly cheese. I had never really appreciated hummus, delicious homemade pesto and the yumminess of smoothies.
I discovered chia and flax seeds, which are excellent egg replacers and thickeners, Who knew oats left to soak overnight could be so good?
No, vegetarianism and veganism are not limiting. They just open you up to a whole new world. And the awesome feeling of knowing that you’re living healthily while leaving less marks on mother earth, and hurting no animals is irreplaceable. ”

Seriously. Closing the door to animal products opened up like another hundred. I have more fun now with food than ever before.

Margay Cats are small wild cats that spend most of their lives up in the trees. Often confused with their slightly large cousins the Ocelot’s they have specialized ankle joints that allow the Margay to make 180 degree turns on the branches of trees and lets them move through the treetops very much like squirrels do where as Ocelots rarely leave the ground.
