Bridge Street, Grand Rapids, Michigan
The following work is a collection of photographs documenting the re-development of Bridge Street, a small neighborhood on the west side of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The project began in October 2016 after observing signs with the advertisement "development site available" on a block of houses, family owned businesses, and historic buildings. The work speaks to urban development, gentrification, and affordable housing while at the same time recognizing and honoring the history of each place.
Images will be added to this series periodically over the next year. Follow @eannrogers and #developmentsiteavailable #disappearingneighborhoods on Instagram to see more images.
