Super Cool Bronx Photog Featured in Times

The New York Times' David Gonzalez has written a piece about photographer Lisa Kahane, who was around snapping pics back when the Bronx was actually burning.

Although she admits things were pretty darn bad back then, she also seems to indicate that there was always a prevailing sense of life and hope.

Ms. Kahane's book, Do Not Give Way to Evil, features thousands of photos she took in the South Bronx from 1979 to 1987.

Check out the Times' article here... It's a good read.
