To Disappear Away
(Places soon to be no More)
To Disappear Away is a series of images focusing on areas and moments within black communities in Memphis that have been greatly affected by gentrification, systematic disenfranchisement and city planning. The work itself captures moments of openness and the haunting reminders of things that once were. Highlighting the conflict between remanence of the past and the modern-day city imposed infrastructural decay, these images focus on the bleakness of these circumstances but also the beauty and hope found in having a community.
