Diptych Friday: unconventional youth

Mo holds his favorite book “Go Ask Alice”, a book about youth and addiction. “I try to read an hour a day cause it gets you out of your head,” said Mo. He was once a drug addict himself, the oldest and black sheep of his family, Mo got into drugs at a young age and was kicked out of his home at 15. He is now living in a tent community on the outskirts of Ann Arbor, MI.

Detroit City Football Club

In Detroit City Football Club’s (DCFC) inaugural season, the minor league soccer team, saw crowds up to 1,500 spectators at their home field, New Cass Technical High School in Detroit. Supporter groups like the Northern Guard Supporters with 722 members by the end of the season and Motor City Supporters fueled the stand of fans with music, chanting and smoke bombs.

“Wind: Mid-Michigan’s New Energy” was a group-thesis multimedia project that focused on the emerging Wind Turbine development in Gratiot County.

Trying to show wind energy in a different light proved to be very difficult. We stumbled across a family trying to fly a kite in their yard. Their home was surrounded by the wind turbines.

Here are a couple films stills and images from that evening of feature hunting:
