Fairfield Street Photo Essay
I recently just took a class at MIT in landscape urbanism called Sensing Place: Photography as Inquiry. It was a series of photo assignments documenting a very small space, in my case an intersection and few surrounding roads in the historic Back Bay neighborhood in Boston. It was partially about photography, part historical research and part writing. I may post some of the individual pictures when I get a chance, but I thought I would throw up the link to the essay form, since the image sequences and text pairing in order to tell a larger story were a large part of how the research played out. Check it out if you like. I will also link to my blog that I was writing about the image taking process, and the class website in case you want to check out some of the other entries. The whole project is a really interesting endeavor because you can see how certain neighborhoods of Boston have changed over the past ten years as they get continually documented and re-documented from different points of view.
