I live in the same town where I grew up. Our house is on the other side of town from the house I grew up in which has given me a different perspective on the town. My son just started going to the same elementary school I went to. As I stepped into the playground it brought up memories that I hadn’t thought of in years. The lines on the asphalt, the sounds of the children, that smell of fall in the air – it was a very “Proustian” experience.
Recently I’ve been working on an ongoing project of creating “portraits” of my town. I’ve been trying to look at all the places that have become so familiar and seeing them in a new, magical way. How did I see the town differently as a child? Some places are gone forever, while others have been constants in our lives: the town hall, the Swim Club, and the tree lined streets.
