Comments on: El Paso (Before/After) http://2point8.whileseated.org/2006/11/16/el-paso-beforeafter/ A wide-open view of the practice of street photography by Michael David Murphy, While Seated. Fri, 28 Nov 2014 22:42:59 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.7.1 hourly 1 By: David http://2point8.whileseated.org/2006/11/16/el-paso-beforeafter/comment-page-1/#comment-4040 David Sat, 23 Dec 2006 17:51:48 +0000 http://2point8.whileseated.org/?p=97#comment-4040 I lived in El Paso from 1988 to 1996. Coming from a rather unremarkable small suburban town, I walked endlessly the fascinating streets of El Paso and Cd. Juarez, including traversing this street corner many times. I think I experienced the tail end of the period captured by Stephen Shore's 1975 photo. It still looked remarkably similar to his photo even in 1988. After NAFTA in 1993 and the subsequent militarization of the border, it began to rapidly change and appear much as it does today. Now there are plans to raze about 75% of the downtown area in an effort at revitalization. It's sad really. Preservation is not really an issue to El Pasoans. I lived in El Paso from 1988 to 1996.

A whole project or book's worth. I want to see more famous photo places now. Fascinating. A whole project or book’s worth. I want to see more famous photo places now.
