[Xmca-l] Re: Look At This: Demolished



Hi David,

I loved this photographic essay, and the browser presentation is compelling as the frame for the storytelling. 

One thing we are concerned with as photographers is how to interact respectfully with subjects, rather than treating them as objects to be fetishized in the frame. I imagine that this is a concern of all ethnographers too.

For me the takeaway of this story is that change doesn't always come according to plan. I was sad to learn so many people got lost in the cracks. I liked that the photographer as able to reunite with the girl on the swing. That was really nice. 

Thanks so much for sharing it. 

Kind regards,

Annalisa

This visual collection at NPR about the end of Chicago's public housing is full of cultural psychology implications. It is truly amazing. Take a few minutes to check it:
