My teammates and I will be presenting at the LABASH conference this Saturday, March 25th at the University of Maryland.
How do we design memorials beyond brick-and-mortar? What stories do we celebrate as a collective? Who decides what is worth memorializing and how does this read into the landscape? How do memorials adapt to site-specific conditions and evolving histories? These are a few of the questions that we found provocative and tried to answer with our project. Our session will will look at “The Im(migrant)”, our mobile memorial project in response to the Memorials For The Future competition, sponsored by the National Park Service, National Capital Planning Commission, and Van Alen Institute.
Last week, I guest posted to the @everydayphilly account on Instagram. This is a community of photographers capturing and documenting life in Philadelphia. I took the opportunity to highlight my ongoing project with Marco Hill, documenting the public school closures in Philadelphia. In 2013 operating under a severe budget shortfall, the district permanently closed 23 schools. These images depict the school buildings as well as the landscape and communities that they once resided. I also posted a few of my street photographs, what I see as quintessential Philly moments.
I’m thrilled to be a part of the photography community in Philadelphia and I’m looking forward to viewing more stories on @everdayphilly.
Did I tell you how much I love capturing portraits? Well, I do. From LA to Philly to Boston, here are a few that I captured over the past 6 months.
