In the same way that in my previous photo essay I focused on small details that I would’ve normally ignored. For this second part I decided to also go to a neighbourhood that I don’t usually visit, to try to find more of those hidden details of the city I live in. To that end, I chose Georgetown; a small rectangle of land isolated from the rest of Seattle by obstacles both natural and man made, that has maintained an aesthetic that feels more small town America than booming tech cultural melting pot.
I had high hopes to find more unique details to re-kindle my photographic relationship to this city… It did not disappoint. Once again, I grabbed my Leica and a roll of Lomography F2 film, this is done on purpose to provide some consistency to the different chapters in this body of work.
Since I’ve already provided my point of view on why I’m doing this in the first part [here] I’ll jump straight into the photos, once again, providing a small caption to explain my motivation or thinking behind the image. There are many ways of photographing a city, this one is my particular point of view.
