Elm Street: A Photo Essay

Elm Street Manchester, NH

Elm Street Manchester, NH

This photo essay is the result of a project undertaken as part of an e-workshop entitled Finding Your Photographic Voice taught by Otto von Münchow of Blue Hour Photo Workshops. My intent was to make photographs along Elm Street (the main street) in downtown Manchester, NH USA to try to convey a sense of place. There were a number of directions in which I could have gone with this, but after being employed as an outreach worker in this community for several years more than a decade ago, it was the people that came through most prominently in most of the photos.

The title shot and following nine photographs comprise the final photo essay

The remaining photos did not make the final photo essay, but are ones that I still liked very much and thought they deserved to be shown on this page.

    Thank you – He’s a neat guy and we chatted often while I did this project. I have a matted print in my car for him. He is the owner of Nawlins in Manchester.
