Hailing from New Jersey, photographer Michael Dalton naturally treats the subjects of his first book with a sense of familiarity and reverence. His images from the faded industrial city of Paterson, with its picturesque waterfall and run-down neighbourhoods, include landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits of couples, all representative of the pride and resilience found in communities that have been forced to adapt. The series is both a personal record and a social document which explores common American themes of perseverance, reclamation, and escape, with a focus on archetypes found within cities of the north-eastern United States and the evolving function of cities like Paterson.
