nickerson gardens

In the winter of 2017 I was invited to an all-fatherhood meeting in the Nickerson Housing Development in Watts. All the way at the end of this meeting I met Maxwell, a once community leader, a basketball legend, a characterlarger than life character. Over the next seven years, I returned countless times, capturing a community filled with love, pain and grit.
