Steve Duncan goes underground at Performance of a Lifetime seminar

Performance of a Lifetime hosted a by-invitation seminar, “Innovations in Development” which featured urban historian and photographer Steve Duncan (center).  Steve’s presentation, “Going Places You’re Not Supposed to Go,” featured an array of starkly beautiful photos (see more at UnderCity.org) taken in sewer systems and underground tunnels from New York to Naples, Chicago to Calcutta. Steve challenges notions of how we see our cities by exploring the hidden infrastructure beneath our feet.  In Q&A with Steve, POAL principals and Institute faculty Cathy Salit and David Nackman, echoed the challenge of “going places (personally and professionally) where the little voice in our head says we’re not supposed to go.”
