As a city, Hartford has gone largely undocumented. It is one of the poorest cities in the country in one of the richest states, which I find incredible, but it is also a rich cultural and spiritual center that goes ignored in photography and in the consciousness of Americans. My creative goal for my project “Silent Hartford” is to document the city and its spiritual centers, markets, barber shops, streets, homes, and people. These photos are just the initial photos I took for a documentary photography course I took last spring, and more will be up soon.
