Fairy Tales from the Fault Lines

Dispatches from the neighborhoods of Washington DC


Fairy Tales from the Fault Lines is a dream-like vision of DC neighborhoods through the lens of a native Washingtonian. Away from the monuments, FTftFL takes an unexpectedly poetic, personal view of life in the changing urban landscape, especially along the shifting central 'fault lines' of a long-divided city.

Shooting continues in tandem with the book design process. The body of work lives on Instagram @billcrandall.
