See what 20 years did to the impoverished residents of Pigeon Hill
Jeffrey Wolin took the Indiana neighborhood of Pigeon Hill and turned it inside out for all to see. Transfixed by the characters in this impoverished neighborhood in the housing projects of Bloomington, Ind., he photographed them from 1987 to 1991. Their mullets and blowouts, incomparable. Many hold in their eyes the clarity and rawness of youth.
Seven years ago, Wolin came across a story about a young woman who was murdered, and he recognized her as one his subjects. It made him wonder what had happened to all of them, and he set out to track them down.
