You Can't Sit With Us • SATWA PROJECT COMPLETE • I've been a neighbor of Satwa for over 6 years. A thin stretch of road divides fancy skyscrapers and this old neighborhood. It's literally like walking from one world to another in a matter of seconds. When I started seeing the bulldozers roll in, I started documenting the area and have been for over 2 years. Now those houses I used to visit are all but gone, I'm guessing some kind of fancy mall will come up soon enough. I see this happening all over the city – my goal this year is to document these places. It'll be interesting looking back at them years from now.

SATWA PROJECT COMPLETE

I’ve been a neighbor of Satwa for over 6 years. A thin stretch of road divides fancy skyscrapers and this old neighborhood. It’s literally like walking from one world to another in a matter of seconds. When I started seeing the bulldozers roll in, I started documenting the area and have been for over 2 years. Now those houses I used to visit are all but gone, I’m guessing some kind of fancy mall will come up soon enough. I see this happening all over the city – my goal this year is to document these places. It’ll be interesting looking back at them years from now.
