Urbanities

Urbanities is a collection of observations on urban oddities. As I explore my home city of Charleston and travel to other cities, I document the imprint left by human interactions with one another and with the urban environment. This series was born out of my fascination of and appreciation for the pleasurable chaos cities create. In The Death and Life of Great American Cities, Jane Jacobs summarized urban environments best:

By its nature, the metropolis provides what otherwise could be given only by traveling; namely, the strange.
