Crane Over Selma
JANE NAMENYE (BFA 1980)
In the late 1990s Hollywood Boulevard started changing. I began documenting the streets, buildings and people in transition, intending to show the photographs after 30-40 years had passed, when “turn of the 21st century” would be looked upon as a different, possibly strange time. Today the changes continue and have, in fact, accelerated. The documartary project continues as "Hollywood under Construction."
