Noted architectural photographer John D. Woolf has spent the last several years documenting Boston’s rapidly changing neighborhoods.
In Roxbury and Dorchester, he focused mainly on the vernacular buildings, which are quickly disappearing, and on early twentieth-century commercial and civic architecture that is still intact. In Charlestown, Chelsea, East Boston, and Everett, home to many recent immigrants from Southeast Asia and Central and South America, Woolf recorded storefronts, restaurants, barbershops, liquor stores, and remnants of industrial areas. In Chinatown, he set out to photograph the many storefronts, restaurants, and small businesses that still exist.
In addition, Woolf has documented roadside architecture and industrial buildings in the Northeast Corridor and cultural institutions throughout the region.
Join Woolf, along with Historic New England staff Lorna Condon and Neil Dixon, for an online exploration of and discussion about Woolf’s stunning and compelling work.
