about this project

What started out about three years ago as an idea to document a culture in a state of transition, evolved into something very much different from what I had expected. The transition I found was obvious and well documented, the roads well trodden. What I didn't expect was the transition in my personal life, as this "art project" evolved into something far deeper and more meaningful. What I didn't expect, was to discover a way of life.

from the project: "movement"

A view backward in time to some of Seattle's darker moments. As relevant today as it was then.
