Diane Weiss's Message: If you know me, than you know i live in Detroit in a neighborhood called Brush Park. I have been documenting my neighborhood with my iPhone for a couple of years as I walk, run or ride my bike around. My BMX project grew out of this personal project because this particular park is on my street.
As the park grew, I knew I had to take the story to the Free Press. I only shoot my neighborhood with my iPhone camera and I post the photos on my accounts @dddetroit and @brushpark_myhood.
The Free Press liked the story, I worked with one of my favorite reporters and they also agreed to run the photos as I originally shot this in the Instagram format. I also shot a video entirely on the iPhone. The link is posted on my page.
