While constructing the Interstate Highway System during the mid-twentieth century, planners and engineers dramatically altered the makeup of many American cities by building urban sections of highways though historically black neighborhoods. Activists would eventually prevent the destruction of their neighborhoods using slogans like "No white men's roads through black men's homes," but the damage was already complete throughout much of the country. Photographer Ashley M. Jones' project Frogtown to Victory explores Savannah's elevated section of Interstate 16 and the neighborhoods surrounding it.
The oldest city in the state of Georgia, Savannah is famous for its historic architecture and "Southern charm," yet the city is also home to deep economic divisions with a fifth of its population living below the poverty line. In his project All lovely things will have an ending, Arturo Soto photographs areas of Savannah largely absent from city's controlled public image.
