The American City

the american city from Matthew James Thompson on Vimeo.

“I’ve always been inspired by the Depression Era photography of Walker Evans and his portrayal of a changing America. Today many American cities are in a similar stage of transition and I was struck by how different the landscapes must have looked just a few years ago. As the trees and plants grow up from the crumbling foundations it’s as if they’re being swallowed back up by the Earth.”
