Marc Asnin

Uncle Charlie

For 31 years, photographer Marc Asnin turned his camera on his Uncle Charlie. He shot thousands and thousands of frames on film, capturing his uncle both in bleak times and when he did the right thing for his family. A selection of 408 photographs tell the story of Uncle Charlie's life, a complex portrait that's part-tough guy, part-loyal father from Brooklyn.
