Kristen Abate was born and raised in the West Village. As a filmmaker and actress her photos try to capture the feeling of a dusty film strip. While rents continue to accelerate her photos attempt to capture buildings, stores and people who could be pushed out by morning. Channeling an unwavering love of nostalgia and construction of the new, Kristen makes a case for what's left and where we're going. New York City is still obtainable if only in a frame.
