For the better part of a week I was drawn to this back alley intersection which locals used as a handy short cut for it's colors, textures, angles, and light. I was drawn to this spot at night, in the morning and especially in the afternoon, rarely taking a photo but just feeling the rhythm of the day. Shadow and daylight, drab and colorful, one direction and another constantly echoing one another.
Author: For more than 20 years Doug Haight has enjoyed life as a photographer and video producer. His work has been featured in numerous festivals, shows and publications, including the New York Times, but not yet National Geographic, Smithsonian or Time to name a few. Doug’s work has not yet been purchased by any major museum but good number of his pieces have been happily bought for private collections. He has taught video and photography to college students and teens, which he finds a lot of fun and very rewarding. About his photography, Doug says ‘Photography often is my excuse to be places I would not be otherwise, and while I’m there I am fortunate to meet people, relate to their lives and see how they connect with the patterns and rhythms of their circumstances. On a good day my work tells organic stories of vitality, emotion and character with images people can disappear into for at least a few minutes.’
