Seattle Porches — Photographs by Sue Ann Harkey
This 10X8 hardcover book of photographs has over 126 full color images of gentrification in progress. Taken between 2010 – 2019 on the streets of Seattle’s fastest changing neighborhoods. With an introduction by Alex Kostelnik.
From the forward: Seattle Porches is a photo essay which began in 2010 having just returned home to Seattle after living in London for the previous 8 years. With a fresh pair of eyes I gazed upon my beloved single-home-occupancy city which had just been ‘discovered’, yet again, and was in rapid transition. Most of these places are long gone, or just gone, or just sold with fingers-crossed its a renovation instead of a demolition this time. So I hope, what I’ve preserved here, will both remind us old-timers of the bad-old-days and will endear our little city to all the newbies who’ve arrived and who are on their way.
1980’s Lower East Side photo essays
The good folks at ‘People’s LES’ and ‘FABnyc’ asked to include a couple of my photo essays from Flickr in their Lower East Side historic programs.
