On Down the Street
Down the Street, Random Views of Boston Neighborhoods by photographer Bruce T. Martin is a rare investigation into the human-scale neighborhoods comprising Boston. Down the Street, Random Views of Boston Neighborhoods captures Boston's mostly residential neighborhoods in layers of image and sound that evoke the intimacy and objectivity of city life. The multimedia presentation, like the city itself, has elicited responses from many perspectives-design, photography, placemaking, city planning, and still others that meet at the edge where art meets the built world. These essay explore Down the Street, Random Views of Boston Neighborhoods as a multimedia exhibition, a photographic achievement, and a living archive that highlights the authentic urban murmur among Boston's architecturally and culturally unique neighborhoods.
