Victor Prieto is the co-founder of DUST Magazine, a magazine that features black-and-white film photography. This is a portraiture series that he photographed, featuring people that lived in his building.
“50 Golden Gate is about meeting my neighbors, I wonder about the people that live around me. What are they like? Where do they come from? How long have they lived here? I have become a part of the building’s history, along with the long list of hundreds of previous tenants. I wanted to explore the history of the building I lived in by meeting the people that inhabit it.” -Victor Prieto
