STEPHEN REISS | Home: A Portrait of a Unique American Family

According to a study conducted by the Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation Law and Public Policy at the University of California Los Angeles, same-sex couples in the Bronx are more likely to have children than those in any other New York City borough and 49% of those couples have children. Eshey Scarborough and her partner Paris Amari run a foster home for at-risk youth in Mott Haven, located in the South Bronx, one of the poorest congressional districts in the country.

CHARLES HARBUTT | Kertesz—Manchester Festshrift

Issue 12

In 1980, the city of Salford in England mounted a huge photography festival. The director asked me to help arrange a large purchase of Kertesz’ work. It would be held by a trust which would provide for pictures from that collection to be on perpetual display in a gallery of the Halle orchestra hall. Kertesz was delighted because while many museums owned prints, they could just as easily let them molder away in storage as show them. When the collection decided to honor Andre on his 90th birthday with a festschrift/catalog, they asked me to write an essay for the book.

BRYAN MELTZ | Resettled: Clarkston, Georgia

Arbai Barre Abdi is 1 of nearly 13,000 Somali Bantu refugees that were resettled throughout the US beginning in 2004. I met Arbai that same year, when she and her four children were placed in Clarkston, Georgia directly from a refugee camp in Kakuma, Kenya. Over the past decade, Clarkston, a former railroad town outside Atlanta, has been transformed into the Ellis Island of the South for refugees from every corner of the globe. It is estimated that one of every three of Clarkston’s residents are immigrants and over sixty languages are now spoken in this small Southern town.
