Technically speaking, I've been to Niagara Falls before but never as an adult. My memories are fabricated from photos taken of me at Niagara Falls as a young child and it's safe to say that these memories of photos are more real than my memories of the actual place.
I have heard very fascinating things about this city though -- often from the Canadian side of the Falls. What I didn't quite know though was that Niagara, NY is sort of an abandoned town. From descriptions of it, it sounds very much like Buffalo, NY, a once heavy-industrial town now left to rot.
Of course, this means ample opportunity for documentation and that's what photographer Michelle Siu has done with her series on the people and places in Niagara, NY.
