We pass by many of these places on a daily basis. Without a second thought we navigate through street grids, and in between towering steel and glass towers that now dominate the urban landscape. We can live our whole lives without having any sort of authentic interaction with much of our urban environment.
The destruction of public spaces along with the continued development of condominiums, office towers and other private spaces and makes it impossible for the average city dweller to experience any sort of meaningful relationship with the surroundings that continue to rise up around them. Humans are curious by nature. There’s a reason why events like Doors Open draws crowds every year. It allows people to take back the city from which they have been disconnected from. I hope my photography can instill a sense of place and inspire others to look at their city and their lives in another light. A life that is not bound to mindless travel but stimulating experiences in the most thrilling and magnificent barrier-free environment around them.
