Faces of addiction by Chris Amade

Photography by Chris and stories from Hunts Point N.Y. One of the Scariest places on Earth.

I’ve read a bit on what faces of addiction shows and I’ve been through Hunts point N.Y. Which is a better name for this project…
I’m sorry to say this place as any New Yorker knows is a world of its own. Chris the faces of addiction spread far around the Globe and smile as they serve you each day, as well as cry to sleep some nights. We are your children, your spouses, your friends, the people who serve you dinner at your favorite restaurant, your doctor, your neighbor, your coworkers, teachers, judges and police,the actors in your favorite films, the musicians who perform your favorite songs, and so on. Some of us are quite obvious, and others are well-hidden, suffering the ugly effects of this disease alone on their bathroom floor, shaking violently, soaked in tears, and overflowing with shame.
Calling this world faces of addiction only shows what your showing. If my Brother Phil were alive I could get you pictures Of Millionaire Addiction and 40 yrs of stories that include Hunts Point.
I’m excited to see what else you have to share through your Lenses. Thank you for your work
