Reading Summary Nersessova

The Article “Tapestry of Space” is a really good article to read. The article is focused on Margaret Morton’s, ” The Tunnel.  Ms. Nersessova, talks about the reality of the homeless living in New York City. The article goes in detail about how Ms. Morton goes around taking pictures of the homeless and letting them tell a piece of their life to her.

A lot of the people who see these shanty towns and houses do not think of the people that live in them.
