The English dictionary defines a street as “a public thoroughfare (usually paved) in a built environment. It is a public parcel of land adjoining buildings in an urban context, on which people may freely assemble, interact, and move about.”

Unlike any other man-made structure, streets have the ability to constantly change hands throughout the day, each sector making the street their own temporary home. But these homes are ephemeral at best and the laughter of school children can be replaced by the sounds of cat calls and drunken slurs in a matter of hours. I am fascinated by this daily transformation so I set out to photograph the people who call the street a home, even if only for an hour.
