Photos: Old East Dallas Gentrification, Part 5

I wanted to start the year off with a new set of photos of Old East Dallas. I walked around Ross Ave, Gaston Ave, San Jacinto St, Peak St, and several other streets shooting off a few rolls of Kodak Portra 400 with my Hasselblad 500cm.

I’m still focusing on capturing the disappearing culture, homes, and people. It seemed like this would be the last time I would see a lot of these places and people as I walked by them. There was sense of awe and sadness in me. It reminded me of the movie, Never Ending Story, how this nothingness was coming and erasing everything. In this case, the “nothingness” are wealthy outsiders buying up cheap properties and tearing down historical homes and building and replacing them with very modern ones.
