Last week I returned to Buffalo, New York for the Society of Architectural Historians' annual meeting. As usual, I took advantage of the combination of arriving early and a little free time to explore the city. While my last trip was primarily dedicated to photographing the great buildings of the city's expansion era, I had greater latitude this time around.
With Detroit's pending emergency manager likely addressing the city's failing streetlight system, and business groups funding streetlights on their own, I thought it was time to post an excerpt of a project on which I've been working since 2009.
After filling 2010 and 2011 with travel, I changed gears in 2012 to spend most of the year in Chicago working on two local projects.
A couple of weeks ago, I visited Buffalo, New York to help the Society of Architectural Historians prepare for their April conference. Subsequently, I spent most of my time preparing traditional architectural photographs, but I did have time to do some personal work. No matter which kind of subject, I was immersed in buildings constructed before WWII.
Last week I traveled to Denver, Colorado to attend the American Sociological Association's annual meeting and to continue my work on creative grassroots responses to urban problems. The conference and Denver kept me busy, but I was also fortunate to have an extra day to make a supplementary trip to Cheyenne, Wyoming.
