Hyde-Jackson is a section of lower Boston along the Orange Line subway, bridging the neighborhoods of Jamaica Plain and Roxbury. Known as “Boston’s Latin Quarter”, the stretch of Centre St. between Hyde and Jackson Squares is the nexus of several forces shaping Boston right now, including redevelopment, gentrification, equitable access to economic opportunity, ethnic sectionalism, and affordable housing.
Together with my friend and roommate Larissa, I will be exploring my new neighborhood through photography and writing over the course of 2014. Shared photographs will be posted to the gallery below, and blog posts containing essays and writing will be linked as well.
You are welcome to follow along with our experiment in neighborhood photojournalism. We welcome comments and discussion posted to the photos in the gallery as well as the blog posts.
