East 100th Street

Quite a few kids on the block are interested in photography. I lent a boy who had been helping me a camera and my developing tank. I gave him some film and I’m teaching him things. The kids and the people who take photographs don’t photograph the slums. They photograph their friends. You know, this boy kissing that girl. All sorts of things, all sorts of possibilities, without sentimentality. They photograph the life they know, not its horrors.
