Meet Me In The Alley
"Meet Me in the Alley" happened on accident.
It began with a photo of a friend in an alley beside the building he had just purchased. The response to the photo was overwhelming and born was the idea of creating a project. Something to tie the community together, with a simple photo series in an alley. The project began with humble aspirations, to include family and friends. Those friends had their friends come, then mutual friends came, until random strangers joined, leading to over eleven hundred people participating in the photo series.
The images as a whole became a representation of the make-up of our city. The background of the images were not important, it was the participants who were front and center. All walks of life...anyone and everyone was welcome to participate, and they did.
