The photo editor at our local paper has embarked on a year-long effort to capture a representative sample of our county’s current demographic. “Our Faces: Portraits of Laramie County” was inspired by historic photos: What were our many ancestors thinking way back when?
Today, as a planner, I wonder the same thing: What do people want for their community? I have to think they would be more open with a photojournalist than a “I’m from the government and I’m here to help you” bureaucrat. I have begun to look forward to picking up the paper every morning for a glimpse of “what makes living in Laramie County great”.
Reblogged from today’s Wyoming Tribune Eagle:
John Shepard smiles during a portrait session at the Hynds Building. “Our Old West heritage and our New West future” are what Shepard said he likes about living in Cheyenne.
