This image is new one to add to my on-going “Disaster Series” works that I’ve been producing for the last few years. It’s an image from an NYPD police cadet graduation ceremony in NYC.

The images multiple re-production is a great metaphor for what’s happening in the streets across America in communities like Harlem, St. Louis, Houston, etc., where communities youth feel under attack by police officers who are uncomfortable with it’s residents.
