From The New York Shitty Photo Pool: BFF

Derik and Jason: East New York Brooklyn

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

Jason (10) and his godbrother Derick (12) where playing in front of their house on an otherwise industrial stretch of Atlantic Avenue where they have been living with their mother for the last few years. While they were showing me their karate moves a rush of police cars came screaming by, headed a few blocks away where a woman was shot.

Derick told me that when he grows up he wants to be an NFL quarterback. Jason wants to be an artist; he spends his free time drawing Manga. Both insisted I come back and take pictures of them breaking boards with their bare hands, like “real karate masters.”



Tell me what you're thinking...
