[Asbury Park, New Jersey: mostly 1995-2001].
Hardcover. Small thick commercial album. Denim over boards with a pocket to resemble blue jeans and featuring a embossed leather patch that reads "Photos." Approximately 5.5" x 6.75". 128 color images both regular prints and Polaroid photographs. Album and images mostly very good or better, with some modest wear and a few tears in the mylar sleeves. Images of young black people in Asbury Park (only two of Caucasians - a young woman and a policeman), likely kept by one of a few women that make frequent appearances in the album. Subjects confined largely to portraits, both young men and women together or separately, with cars, drinking and smoking weed, throwing signs or flipping the middle finger (seemingly the default gesture in the photos), preparing for nights out, some of women posing in lingerie or scantily clad, dressed in hoodies, basketball jerseys, and low rise jeans, in or outside of clubs or convenience stores., and a few of small children. None of the images have captions, a few are date stamped, mostly in 2001, the Polaroids seem earlier, and at least one is dated in 2007. Interesting insight into young African-Americans at the New Jersey Shore.
