These photographs are a portion of a much larger body documenting the Homestead, Fl community. Though changing rapidly, this community hangs on to traditional values. People of all creed and race come together to celebrate. I enjoy working here because I see happiness, hope, and community. This is the melting pot I have heard about. Everyone generally comes together, gets along, and celebrates together. Traditions run deep here but so does a sense of being American, of being on the same team, of family.
