A Portrait of a My Neighborhood

The Other Side of The Tracks

Photo by Austin Koester
Every city is divided into neighborhoods, sometimes for economic reasons, and sometimes for issues relating to race or income. The following photograph shows a neighborhood different from the city it belongs to. There’s no clear line that separates it from it’s better half. Some say it’s divided by a set of railroad tracks. Some say it begins in an alley way between Kentucky and Adams st. Wherever it begins and whatever it may be called, I know it as my backyard. This is one photograph that represents a collection I put together for my capstone photojournalism class. It aims to give viewers a glimpse into the neighborhood and it’s inhabitants.
