The Windows of New York project is a weekly illustrated fix for an obsession that has increasingly grown in me since chance put me in this town. A product of countless steps of journey through the city streets, this is a collection of windows that somehow have caught my restless eye out from the never-ending buzz of the city. This project is part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up. (text from Windows of New York)

Slot machines have a special attraction, as a winning payout seems to permanently beckon. The operators are exploiting an addiction, and their profits come mostly from pathological gamblers or those at risk becoming so. It is a business of false hopes, because players - usually young, almost exclusively male, often with a migration background - have no change in long term: "Those who claim to have won," goes an old pearl of gaming wisdom, "have just not played long enough." Studies talk of the "heroin of the 1990s": the profits go to private individuals, but it is society that bears the follow-up costs.
