As my time at Marquette comes to a close, I have found myself prematurely missing not only campus, but also Milwaukee. In In particular, Wisconsin Ave. has become as
much of my home street as the small road where my childhood home sits. For this photo series, I decided to photograph some of the buildings I often pass on my walks throughout the city.
The series is chronological, beginning on campus where I started in the fall of 2012. I spent most of my freshman year on campus, but as time passed, I ventured beyond
11th St. Viewers will follow my metaphorical journey and walk eastward down
Wisconsin Ave. until they arrive at the Milwaukee Art Museum and Lake Michigan, marking the unofficial end of Wisconsin Ave.
The title for this photo series is “Walking Down Wisconsin”
Originally, I had the art museum shot as my end image to the series. However, I decided to take viewers down to the end of the street, through the art museum and then back onto Wisconsin Ave., but looking down the street we just walked. I find it fitting that Wisconsin Ave. does not technically end. It simply curves into Prospect Ave. As my time in Wisconsin ends (at least for a while), new prospects are quite literally around the corner and I can look ahead to the next street — er, stage — of my life.
