About the Archive
This Archive is an online repository of my digital media work on urban development. This site catalogs images taken in Barrio Logan from 2007 to the present. Recent development began after the development of the San Diego Padres' baseball stadium. The intent is to catalog the re-photographic process of documenting the barrio's ballpark encroachment, including other digital content about the barrio's transformation.
Re-photographing Barrio Logan is inspired by Camilo José Vergara, who has been re-photographing decaying urban cities since the 1980s. For Vegara, tracking time through photographs has allowed him to reveal a city's urban reality. I too subscribe to the idea of discovering a city's urban reality, which has enabled me to capture not only the urban landscape, but also make the barrio a community.
