This Week in Photography: Visiting Houston in #2020

  Part 1. The Intro   I went to Houston six months ago. Went is the past tense of the verb to go. In Spanish, it’s ir, and in French, it’s aller. So I would say Je suis allé a Houston. Do you remember what it means to go places? To leave your home, or your town, and transport your body somewhere else, to a different city, or state, to a different culture, with a different landscape? Honestly, I kind of forget what the sensation feels like. Six months ago, I did something that was, at that point,...

AK Monthly Recap: August 2020

A New Interactive Map Shows All Four Million Buildings That Existed in New York City from 1939 to 1941

New Yorkers have borne witness to a noticeable uptick in the number of shiny, new buildings going up in the city over the last few years, crowding the waterfront, rising from the ashes of community gardens and older, infinitely more modest structures. Their developers have taken care to top load them with luxury amenities—rooftop cabanas, 24-hour fitness clubs, marble countertops, screening rooms. But one thing they can’t provide is the sense of lived history that imbues every old building ...
