Modern segregation… alive and well in the US.
South Central Dallas by Laurisa Galvan.
The photographer writes:
South Central Dallas is about an inner city urban area in social isolation. I was told not to go there. There is a taboo; ordinary people stay away from that area, and the people who reside there seem to stay within their territory. The area is described as dangerous, both by residents and outsiders; it seems exotic. A place where the rules, to a certain extent, do not apply. It is a place people want to see on television, but they don’t really want to be there. It is a place that can be easily ignored. It’s streets do not sleep; day or night there is always something going on.
I really dig this work - her words match exactly how I felt looking at the images (before reading what she wrote). These thumbs don’t do it justice, go over to Fraction Magazine and check out the rest.
