Sprawl has been a destructive force environmentally and socially
for over sixty years: enough. We must question photography that
romanticizes the ennui of suburban isolation and consider how
photography may, instead, be a force for change. Sorlien will
show how progressive planners and architects, armed with digital
cameras, analyze development patterns to extract the genetic
material of the diverse, walkable places still remaining. This process
allows us to write resilient place-based DNA into design and
zoning codes. Thus photography is an important analytic and
advocacy tool for the recovery of urban form.
