Documented in 2011
Length: 13:22

I found a small tailor near where I live in Bed-Stuy. Kebe, who comes from Senegal, owns this store. Kebe makes custom clothing to support his family in Senegal. He builds friendships with his customers and his friends bring new clients to him. His friends hang out at his store and create a sense of community. In the act of documenting his business and community, I became a friend as well.
