Photographer Alix Dejean

An older gentlemen has been showing up at my job purchasing the last of our Kodak color paper (Kodak has discontinued their print darkroom paper) for the past couple of weeks. And I knew from his thick accent that he was of Haitian origin. But today I revealed or shared background and he opened up rather quickly telling me his life story in a few quick sentences. This included his decades long career photographing the people of Harlem and being a Civil engineer. In 2008, the NY Times even thought his work and life warranted a piece. His is a Brooklyn native and I hope to do something on him soon.
