Between Things

These views between houses reveal the complex layering of daily life.

These neighborhoods in Greater Boston are packed with triple-deckers spaced a driveway apart, marked off by chainlink and orange traffic cones. Like peering into an archaelogical dig, these photographic vistas show roofs and fences and telephone poles several blocks deep.

The driveways are a personal space that's open for viewing: the cars and milk crates, trash bins and clay pots, plus whatever detritus overflows from the yard. The photographs are a record of what happens between things, while life goes on elsewhere.
