Queens based photographer, Vikram Dogra has lived in Astoria since 2000. He arrived as an immigrant from India in 1982 and has lived in West Virginia, North Carolina and Washington, DC. In the cradle of the multicultural landscape of Queens he found a place to love and belong. East of East River began as a photo series recording the unique make-up of both the landscape and people of Astoria and Long Island City, and eventually became a self-published photography book in 2015. These photographs capture a changing landscape of the neighborhoods from 2004 to 2015. The photographs combining street and fine-arts photography offer a unique and historical portrait of the ever-changing neighborhoods.
