Aurora, September 2011

I've been photographing along Aurora Road (WA State Highway 99) for the past few years. The road used to be the main highway going north and south through Washington State to Vancouver BC. I started documenting the area as a part of a class photographing the motels along the old freeway. This project has opened up to be an ongoing look of a place that I consider to be the last frontier in Seattle. Many of the hotels have been converted to apartments, and many of these tenants have fascinating stories that they are more than willing to share. I consider telling their stories with words to be an impossible task, therefore I allow my camera to do the talking for all of us.
