professional project: 512 mary street

October 26, 2010

This afternoon, Valeria took me to the place on 512 Mary St. where Deandra Buchanan shot and killed her daughter Angela almost to the day ten years ago. She had a little bouquet of flowers with her that she laid down on the sidewalk where Angela was found. The house where the shooting took place still stands, but has now a wooden exterior rather than a brick one. It doesn’t look like someone’s living there now, and trees and bushes grow all around it. It looks kind of creepy, and I’m wondering if I should go back when it’s dark to work out that aspect. I’m kind of torn apart about it, though, because I’m not sure if it might come across as sensationalistic or editorializing. I’d be glad to hear some other thoughts on this.

    Jakob, I couldn’t find more about this project on your blog, so I don’t have all the background. Based on what I read from this post, I do think that visiting the house at night to explore the creepiness of the place is sensationalistic and really not necessary. Cheers.

    Juan, thanks so much for your feedback! After giving it some thought, I agree with you that exploiting the sinister atmosphere of the house is unnecessary since the story itself is traic enough. There is more posted about this project on this blog. You can access it by clicking the “professional project” tag in the tag cloud on the sidebar. Hope all is well with you!
