As I navigate a world of surveillance cameras, drones, social media, “smart” phones, and facial recognition software, I find myself in a constant struggle with both visibility and invisibility. Anonymity is becoming harder, yet so is being seen. “Believe Me,” a title inspired by Trump’s most frequently used two-word phrase, is a series of photographs resembling surveillance images that one might find in Google Earth.

Thirty years ago, a murder occurred about every five days on average in the 46th Precinct in the west-central Bronx (Fordham, University Heights, Morris Heights and Mount Hope). There were more detectives than on any other squad in the borough, but the precinct felt enough under siege to be nicknamed “Alamo.” Angel Franco, a freelance photographer who had grown up and lived not far away, made it a mission to accompany officers and detectives from the Four-Six every day he could, from 1979 to 1984.
