Downtown Selma, Alabama. August 2018.


The inspiration for Downtown Planning Lab came after a trip to Alabama in August 2018, where I visited the cities of Montogomery, Birmingham, and Selma. I wanted to learn more about the civil rights history of the United States, I felt like I couldn't talk more about racial oppression and equity in my life or work, without visiting the places that shaped this history. During this trip, I focused my eyes through my camera to document the physical representations of history in the built environment, landmarks, memorials, and city blocks.  The images produced (shot on film)  helped me to frame my ideas and lay the foundation for my future work. More to come!
