Where I Stand Sunday

The colors in Detroit's Mexicantown burn brightly against the paleness of winter. I'm drawn to them again and again, admiring the vibrancy of it all. A fascination with Dia de lost Muertos stays at the forefront, reminding me to celebrate this life every day.

Where I Stand is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places I spend my life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. The ground we tread on has its own stories to tell. (The project is now in Year Three. Year Three will feature artwork inspired by that week's Where I Stand photo as well as the photo that inspired it. Year One and Year Two can be found here.)

INSPIRED BY ARTWORK TECHNIQUE: collage and assemblage
