I'm happy to share some maps I have been working on over the past year. They are impressionistic, psychogeographic maps intended to both express my perception of a place and hopefully connect with visitors and residents to that place. Although accurate, the maps are less functional and more artistic.
The maps consist of original photography collaged into the geography of the neighborhood or town depicted. So far I've covered Carroll Gardens(attached), South Williamsburg and Bushwick in Brooklyn and Chapel Hill, NC(my hometown). I'm working on Lower East Side, New York City and hope to continue expanding my coverage both through commissions and my own initiative. Environs Maps are being printed as both small 4" x 6" postcards and larger 18" x 24" wall maps. Still figuring out creative marketing ideas so your feedback is welcome.
