Art is a powerful way to tell a story and the gentlemen known as Street Etiquette made sure their story was heard. The series of photos gave us a perspective of a flower growing through the cracked cement. Although simply said, it was well put together with a combination of images capturing refined men (and boy) in suits, in and around NYC public housing buildings. Be sure to support Street Etiquette by going to SlumFlower and taking a look at their project. TTG
