Photos: Old East Dallas Gentrification, Part 6

When we got a little bit of snow this winter, I grabbed my Hasselblad and ran out and took photos of the neighborhood sprinkled with snow. The snow gave everything an innocent and whimsical look, hiding the sad realty of what is actually happening. I realized I hadn’t taken many landscape photos, so that I made sure I did some those type of photos on this shoot.

A week or two later, I went back out to shoot another roll. Within several days the weather was nice and sunny with people outside. Behind the liveliness were buildings being torn down and furniture being thrown out everywhere I went. These lively residents were being pushed out and replaced by ghosts.
