About Tribes

The Tribes Project is an ongoing personal endeavor that documents the people within my personal and professional circle in New York City. We invite individuals to participate in the project through both stills and by sharing their stories on video.
During the video process our subjects alone choose the content of their stories. Whether they involve family, relationships, their professional lives, or their hopes and desires is entirely of their choosing. Some even sing a song.

I am David Plakke and these are my people. 

They are from many Tribes.
