Thank you @polkamagazine for mentioning photobook Urban Cave in the livres section of the brilliant current edition, Polka Magazine #30 Jun-Jullet-Aout.

From a rough phone ap translation from the original french text: Result of seven years of investigation, "Urban Cave" plunges the reader into the lives of Chuck, Lisa or Geo, all residing in the New York pavement. Railway tunnels, in disused buildings, on the banks of the Hudson River, they found refuge in these caves and urban living, some for over twenty years. The camps arise between shadow and light into the lens of the photographer. Feeding, bathing, earning a few dollars by collecting cans, sometimes through prostitution, but also loving and protecting against attacks ... Andrea Star Reese makes, through her images and the many testimonies homeless dignity to these invisible citizens. • O.T. "Urban Cave" Andrea Star Reese,
