About Harry

Harry Connolly's picture
My photography projects take time but time helps tell the story. I look for projects that take me to places that the photographer Walker Evans described best: "It's as though there's a wonderful secret in a certain place and I can capture it. Only I can do it at this moment, only this moment and only me." I start out as a stranger, asking people to trust me, to let me into their world, to tell me their story.

Skid Row, Los Angeles

This is part of a current book project documenting the work of young architects across the USA.
One of these is working in L.A.'s Skid Row, home to well over 15,000 homeless men, women and children.

Many individuals and groups are trying to help but the problem is growing.

At The Border

This is part of a current book project documenting the work of young architects across the USA.
One of these is working in San Ysidro, a major crossing point along the US-Mexico border. There a $750 million project is underway. New buildings, new inspection areas, rerouted highways. It's a place where signs warn that you are being watched and your conversations recorded. A place where tension continues to grow.

Little Italy-1

Anything worth doing is worth overdoing! In 1997 I began to document life in Baltimore's Little Italy- color photographs, audio and video interviews and essays. As soon as a photo is taken it becomes part of the past. Usually that trip is gradual and unnoticed. But I soon realized that I might be photographing Little Italy's last hurrah. Many of the people and places you will see here are gone now.
When I began this project, I was told, "You should have been here 40 years ago. This place was something back then! Of course we would have thrown you out. No stranger with a camera in our Neighborhood!" Now I feel like saying, "You should have been here 15 years ago..."
