About this Episode


Chris Arnade is not the guy you’d expect to see shooting photos of home addicts in the Bronx. With a Ph.D. in physics and a 20-year career on Wall Street, Chris embarked on long walks in New York City and eventually to Hunts Point in the South Bronx. There he started a project he didn’t intend to start. It’s called ‘Faces of Addiction, ‘ and you can go here to see the photos. Please know that some of the images, while beautiful, may be disturbing to some people, but they are still worth viewing.

Chris talked about that project, what led him to it and what he is working on now. You can follow him on Twitter.
