Jessica Dimmock: The Ninth Floor

Jessica Dimmock: The Ninth Floor at Foley Gallery. "...Jessica Dimmock began photographing her series 'The Ninth Floor' after being approached by a New York City drug dealer several years ago. She was in the midst of completing her degree at the International Center of Photography for Documentary Photography and Photojournalism. She became interested in photographing the dealer and his daily deliveries. One such stop was the ninth-floor of an elegant apartment building in New York's Flatiron district. For the next two and a half years Dimmock settled in as a long-term observer to candidly record the consumptive and consumed lives of nearly thirty heroin addicts in their eroding, claustrophobic home." More Works by Jessica Dimmock at her personal site. Stunning!
