I was looking over some photographs on some hard drive I had in my studio. It contained so interesting images of people and places I rarely meet or areas I don't visit much. I come from a white middle class background and for the most part know people a lot like me. So when i saw these photographs of a book I was doing of the urban churches in Albany, NY titled Sunday hats I really wanted to finish the book. The people are amazing and there ideas and what is important to them is wonderful. These ladies are some of the most kind people I have ever meet. I have thousands more photographs I just wanted to share a few. Sunday fashion and colorful hats and the important place in the local culture is so interesting to me. Here is a quick look at a few.
