The Bronx Riviera

Untitled, 2005

When St. Kitts born photographer Wayne Lawrence moved to New York in 2005, he began taking pictures on Orchard Beach in the Bronx.

The result, nearly a decade later, is this series of beautiful and distinctive portraits that are a little reminiscent of Rineke Dijkstra’s images but with more edge.
