We're excited to announce the online launch of stories by @everydaymotorcity 2018 #Documenting DETROIT Fellows! Each story, made by a Detroit-based photographer, celebrates the culture, community, and character of the Motor City. The Project is also a program of @facingchange © @3andathird - A young Detroiter admires the "suicide doors" of a classic 1961 Lincoln Continental parked in her east side Detroit neighborhood of Kettering on Iroquois St. #everydaymotorcity #documentingDETROIT #detroit #detroitphoto #facingchange #facingchangeusa #everydayeverywhere #everydayprojects
🎧....Your friends are foes / My friends are goals / Closer than kin / Our souls exposed, yeah / Your friends are frauds / All they want is applause, yeah / And my friends, real friends / Closer than kin........ . . Sidenote: Not that I didnt value the friendships that I made when I was younger, but the friendships that I have developed in the last few years I have really cherished. It is refreshing to be surrounded by some real ones. In 2019 I want to keep nurturing my true friendship connections. I Love Yall Friends/Fam! . . . . #justgoshoot #bgwac #postthepeople #folkportraits #motorcityshooters #hellyeahdetroit #detroit #streetphotography #reflection #reflectiongram #urbanandstreet #streethype #killeverygram #puredetroit #liveauthentic #streetdreamsmag #rsa_streetview #puremichiganders #portsofdetroit #documentingdetroit

Last summer I joined an elite group of photographers and documentarians in Detroit, when I became a Documenting DETROIT fellow (@everydaymotorcity ). My final collection of photos followed the events surrounding Aretha Franklin’s passing. Aretha, the Queen of Soul, was a beloved Detroiter and her passing brought thousands to the city to mourn and celebrate her. To see the curated collection of not only my photos and audio, but all the fellows, put together by the team of Documenting DETROIT, go to www.documentingdetroit.org or click the #linkinbio
“I used my own personal Quran that my best friend of 25 years gifted me to use for the ceremonial swearing in. I did not use Jefferson's Quran as reported. I wanted it to be more personal (and my own).” -#RashidaTlaib (2018) . . . This is 2017 #DocumentingDetroit fellow @erikpaulhoward. This week I'll be sharing photos from my series on @RashidaTlaib 's historical campaign, election, and swearing in as U.S. Congress Representative for Michigan's 13th District—simultaneously elevating and intersecting our hyper-local stories here in #SWDetroit (and across the district) with national/international interests. . . . . . #EverydayDetroit #EverydayEverywhere #Detroit #motown #motorcity #docphoto #documentary #documentaryphotography #photojournalism #swdetroit #southwestdetroit #photostellstories #motorcityshooters
Tlaib and her mother into the staging area with family and supporters for the ceremonial swearing in with Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "It was important to have my mother with me in DC for the swearing in because of all we've been through together, it feels like both the combination of one journey and the start of another," Tlaib says. "My mother raised 14 kids, with little means, from our humble house in Southwest Detroit – and now her daughter who started school not speaking English is going to be a congresswoman. It was so important for her to know her strength got me here, and that I'm going to fight every day with her spirit inside me." . . . This is 2017 #DocumentingDetroit fellow @erikpaulhoward.

Tlaib and her mother each wore thobes, A traditional Palestinian garb, for the swearing in ceremony. "My Yama shined in her Palestinian thobe," Tlaib says.

Hannah and her father, New York City, December 30, 2018. Maybe a long, long, time from now, Hannah will sometimes remember some ordinary, simple pleasures of her childhood. I have one conscious memory of riding on my father's shoulders: it would have been 1974, at the Thanksgiving Day Parade. I was on top of the world, and young women dressed as grey mice were walking along the parade route shaking hands. Their costume pleather gloved "paws" felt warm and greasy to my 3-year old hands. Photograph by @gosiaphoto on my @fujifilmx_us Fuji X-E2 with the 18mm f/2 lens, shout-out to them for supporting our @everydaymotorcity #documentingdetroit project! #ontopoftheworld #greenwichvillage #west4th #manhattan #newyork #newyorkcity

Where will the journey lead us next?
There is a self referential nature about pictures of buildings installed on buildings, like a city, looking closely at itself, evaluating what needs to be saved and nurtured, and what needs to be left behind. There is a breaking up, a restructuring of fragments in space. The squares of film act like bricks, or building blocks, sometimes blowing apart, sometimes coming together, but always shifting, constantly changing like the shifting urban development of a city reborn. At times the pictures resemble weavings, but instead of fabric, it’s limestone, brick, steel and glass. At times the film squares act as tiles, like a mosaic, transforming the everyday into malleable and expressive bits and pieces. The typical static frame is shattered, and in place of stagnation, movement takes over and the frame comes to life. The subject is infused with an expressive quality and the feeling is one of seeing a still frame, animated. The subject, made of film, retains all the qualities of the original exposure, little is lost in acuity as the fragments are moved to reshape an old idea and transform it into something recognizable, familiar, yet completely changed, altered with influence to tell a new narrative about a city once golden, once called, “The Paris of the West“, once powerful and revered, but now one of change, one in transformation, a city in the state of becoming, much like the photographs from, “Detroit: Reconstructed.” —————————————————————————Public art proposal Detroit: Reconstructed ————————————————————————thanks @katherinelorenzetti#detroit #publicart #librarystreetcollective #mural #proposal #communityspace #art #socialhistory #streetart #documentingdetroit #architecture #detroitarchitecture #analog #largeformat #film
