Life on Albany.
Life on Albany Gallery
This ongoing photographic project seeks to challenge the stigmatizing narrative about the area mischaracterized as “Methadone Mile,” by showing the faces of people experiencing homelessness, addiction, and mental illness down the street from SPH.
Liam P. Hunt, the Activist Lab’s educational technologist, is the photographer behind the series. While his previous 14 portraits were taken in rapid succession out on Albany Street, for the new series Hunt and Harold Cox, director of the Activist Lab and associate dean for public health practice, took photos of three volunteer portrait subjects in a nearby photography studio while spending hours talking with them about their experiences and aspirations.
