An ongoing project about the powerful ties I have with Hamilton, Ohio. The Rust Belt. A Bible Belt. A Poverty Belt. A Homefront Town in World War II. A Battleground State in 2016. Hamilton is all these things.
It is tied to the past yet emblematic of shift in political and socio-economic allegiances. I set out to capture this culture of resistance and fortitude, the rejection of modern tumult and a fading way of life taking its last breath with pride and defiance. Most of all, it is a town of great people. This journey is still helping me define the concept of "home".
