ARTIST ENGAGEMENT REFLECTION – ALISON MARIE MOLNAR
“These images were taken over the course of the semester in the historical neighborhoods of Tucson surrounding the University of Arizona and downtown area. There is an air of nostalgia in the historical neighborhoods of Tucson. The various styles of architecture are unique and have a sense of mystery. While some of these homes show the decay of time, others are restored and maintain their charm. Tucson is rich in culture because of its diverse influences that are imbedded in the Southwest.
I have created a collection of images that examine how eclectic Tucson is, searching for both the beauty in grungy suburbia and its decaying history. As I photographed my work I transcended into a different time, imagining these homes in their prime.”
