Towards the end of this project, I began to photograph former Borscht Belters: visitors, workers, locals and couples who met there. So many people reached out to me during this five year process, whether to share their stories or to point me in the direction of a specific hotel or bungalow colony. In some cases, they were people I knew my entire life. In other cases, they were total strangers. While these portraits did not make it into the book, I consider them as an extension of the project and felt this, the apropos place to share them.
If you (or someone you know) have spent time, lived or worked in the Borscht Belt and are interested to be part of this portrait series, please send me a message.
