Title: Basement Sanctuaries
Publisher: Schlit Publishing
Basement Sanctuaries by photograph Gesche Würfel
explores the ways in which superintendents decorate basements of
apartment buildings in Northern Manhattan, New York City by
illuminating the process of migrant adaptation to the metropolis from
an intimate perspective.
Superintendents are caretakers that usually live in the basements of
apartment buildings with ten or more units. Most of the supers in
Northern Manhattan are migrants from Latin America or the Caribbean.
During the process of apartment hunting in Northern Manhattan, Würfel
discovered these unexpected and innovatively decorated areas.
