RADIANT EXCESS: Inside Bronx Bodegas
In the spring of 2016 Katzenstein was given a commission by CBS News Sunday Morning to do a series of portraits of bodega owners in the Bronx to accompany a piece being produced about how bodegas are the center of the social fabric of most neighborhoods in New York City. Katzenstein spent two days touring different neighborhoods, guided by the Secretary General of the Bodegueros Association of USA. The theme of his project was to document the plethora and diversity of merchandise that surrounds each owner as they stood proudly in their stores. In the end the series is a celebration of the immigrant dream.
Bodegas: The lifeblood of New York City neighborhoods aired on CBS News Sunday Morning on April 9, 2017
