The Hasty Store at the corner of Hope and Kenilworth has been closed since I started this project. Just a bunch of junk locked behind an ironwork fence. While shooting in front of the store last week, Dashti came over and opened the gate. He was doing some cleaning in the very back. Although he didn't speak much English, he did have time for a photo before heading into the back.
Although I've worked as a photographer all my life, I'm currently back at school trying to finish my Master of Fine Arts Degree at the Maine Media Workshops and College.
Cig Harvey is one of my mentors and the project I'm working on is a documentary on north Hamilton.
