The Ninth Floor
We automatically click to scroll through the images. Only our index is trembling enough. But what are we really looking at ? Why this nauseous and compassionate feeling ? Fear ? Sadness ?

+ The Ninth Floor project
This project documents the residents of this space leading up to their eviction and follows several of them after as they face jail and sickness, fight and love, attempt to get clean, sink deeper into addiction, go to jail, start families and struggle to survive.
