The DELRAY Project

In early 2016, a nonprofit organization that is working to increase the quality of life of people in Delray, Detroit

approached me to document this area before a new bridge to Canada is constructed in the center of this Detroit neighborhood.

They asked me because they knew I was already working in this community for the Common Heroes project.

I wanted residents to document the way they see their own community. I organized a photography workshop and

supplied them with cameras. People were so eager to tell their stories, I started recording conversations.

The project resulted in a slideshow that also includes some of my own photos. This is a selection of photos that were in the slideshow, plus a few more.

The video above is the complete slideshow with audio interviews, which can also be found at
