Beach-goers near the Bronx in New York may look eccentric to many people. However, Wayne Lawrence’s portraits reflect the dignity and pride of a community standing in defiance of popular opinion.

Wayne spent six years making a remarkable set of portraits, soon to be published in a book and the highlight of an exhibition at the Bronx Museum. Read and see more in LensCulture.
