Legal aid is something that the poor and underprivileged have difficulty acquiring, and unfortunately this is a problem millions of people face regularly in NYC. Open Hands Legal Services seeks to address and eliminate this injustice by providing legal services to New Yorkers that would otherwise be unable to obtain them due to various social and economic circumstances. We are honored to have been asked to shoot portraits of the beneficiaries of these services as an ongoing partnership between Open Hands and FRAME.
