Down These Mean Streets, 2010

camera and film, Dimensions Variable

Contact Regarding Availability

Down These Mean Streets examines fear and the abandonment of America's inner cities. Photographing only at night with a large format view camera, I work in a set routine by walking between the airport and central business district of each city I photograph. My focus is the neighborhoods you wouldn’t want to be in at night; the part of town you drive through - not to. By addressing the loss and despair that prevail in our urban communities my aim is to reveal a modern day portrait of the American inner city as problems and issues cannot be solved if they are not first identified. We must look inward at ourselves.
