Street Focus 34: Tent City with Christopher Occhicone

Based in New Jersey, Christopher Occhicone graduated from the documentary and pj program at the International Center of Photography. He has most recently photographed in Libya and Ukraine with work featured on Al-Jazeera and LensCulture. His work was also screened during the Visa Pour L'image photojournalism festival.

Today Christopher shares with us a project he refers to as The Fringe. For several months, he photographed a group of addicts living in the forrest encampment known as Tent City near Lakewood in New Jersey.

Here are a few images from his project.

  1. Damn. These people, so many questions. Powerful images, deep respect for the work here, and sending best wishes to the people in the photos too. A great podcast – I listened while out running this morning and just had to stop. Thanks for sharing…
