Artist’s Statement:
"This project is an examination of race, space, and nature amidst the unending and uneven development of urban environments. Through these photographs, I explore the complexities between the utopian aspirations of urban planners and the social realities of public housing. These photographs are from the Julia C. Lathrop Homes, a public housing complex on the North Side of Chicago built as a result of the New Deal and designed in the spirit of the English "Garden City" movement. My images reconsider the residents, landscapes, and notion of public housing that has otherwise been marginalized."
