The Portland Grid Project began in 1996, with a group of photographers working to systematically document their city. Splitting the map into a grid with 1.5 mile squares, the photographers spent a month on each square. The range of techniques created not just an intimate portrait of Portland, but of the way each photographer sees their city as well.
I think this could be a cool extension of Mallory’s project. After seeing the places she found, it could be fun to do an Atlanta round. Anyone interested?
