Michael Naclerio: “Enter as Strangers”

In 2009, Joseph Bushfan, a former bodyguard and fledgling entrepreneur decided to sell hotdogs on what was then the most dangerous corner in Durham, North Carolina. Three years later, the neighborhood is slowly recovering with the help of local investors and other likeminded entrepreneurs. Enter As Strangers takes viewers inside this community through photographs and the audio from interviews with the people working to restore this historic part of Durham.

Michael Naclerio is a public policy major from St.Louis, Missouri. At CDS, he has focused on photography as a means to document and befriend local entrepreneurs.
