Christine Quinn Was a Cute Dyke When She Was Young

Christine Quinn Was a Cute Dyke When She Was Young
Ted Kerr

Inspired by Sarah Schulman’s book, The Gentrification of the Mind: Witness to a Lost Imagination, this winter, 12th Street Managing Editor, Ted Kerr travelled around lower Manhattan to capture ideas of a gentrified New York.

Less interested in capturing rehearsed signs of gentrification—graffiti, Starbucks, and garbage—Kerr worked to communicate broader sensations of gentrification as evoked by Schulman: isolation and limits, and questions of loss and opportunity.

Captured on experimental, instant film, the photographs are romantic and optimistic, highlighting the possibilities of impermanence.

This photo essay is an extension of the two-part Sarah Schulman interview Mr. Kerr published in February and March of this year on 12th Street Online. Read part one and part two on their website.
