Old Louisville

Tom Fox

I think the only way to actually see Old Louisville is through a camera's lens, and I've lived in Old Louisville for nearly two years. Old Louisville is a very busy and diverse environment, and it takes in a lot of territory. I've seen only a small part of it, and I've been working at it for many months, on foot and up close.

It's impossible to see Old Louisville from inside a car. It just can't be done. Even on foot it isn't easy. You have to get past the heavy growth of trees that line the streets, and look past the landscaping, the power lines, and the neglect. The look of any location in Old Louisville changes from season to season, and from day to day.

So, I take a lot of photographs and discard most of them to focus in on the right view in the right light, and at the right time of day, and I have collected the best of my recent photos in the first issue of Old Louisville photographs.
