WATCH ME GROW is an ongoing project. Since 2009, we have been documenting the storefront childcare centers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Initially, we were drawn to the vernacular architecture and the hand-painted messages. The project soon became more challenging—we can't ignore that these facilities represent the unintended consequences of complex social issues and policies surrounding how we care for our children.
As we work through this project, we are posting in our NOTEBOOK - WATCH ME GROW. We invite you to visit and welcome your comments there.
