Cheshire Bridge Road is an alluring look into a diverse southern urban community within Atlanta, Georgia known for its many strip clubs, gay bars, and adult novelty stores.

For decades, Cheshire Bridge Road has offered places for people to freely express themselves regardless of gender, race, and sexual orientation.

After years of experiencing rejections, people began to not see my camera as a threat. I slowly established a presence, and trust within the community. Now, the images reveal the humanity of an edgy diverse disappearing urban community.

This road is suffering from an explosion of redevelopment. Many historic places are being demolished and replaced with ‘luxury’ high-rise apartments, storage facilities, and chain stores. This unique community is becoming extinct before of my eyes. Soon, the diversity along the road will no longer exist, and its soul lost forever.
