The results from the ambitious 'Cleveland 20/20' photography project from the Cleveland Public Library are stunning and poetic. And they are well worth your attention and time.
"2019 was our 150th anniversary, and we hadnt really done anything before that showed the people," Mason told BuzzFeed of the project. "I thought that it was a great way to profile the people that have made us who we are today."
"Online media tend to favor the extreme, but when you commission photographers...who are from neighborhoods, you see a very different picture of what life is like," Mason said.
Selections will be included in the library's permanent collection.
