Like Dreams was really the first of my surveillance projects, though at the time, I didn't know how consuming it would become. In 2009, I was photographing street life in New York City's Chinatown, and for this series, I photographed reflections in store windows as the people passed by, as windows had become an important focus in a lot of the work. Like Dreams straddles the line between the Chinatown work and the surveillance projects that followed, and is an integral part of both.
