Downtowners is a series in a larger body of work that began in 1990, called Systems of Organization. Downtowners is a continuation of Martin’s work to both understand and acknowledge who we are from spending time with and looking at what’s here, and how that may be translated through the photographic medium. Downtowners specifically looks at moments of architecture and people as an isolated sculptural experience.

“I think what we are all trying to do as artists is to offer clarity and connection to a larger sense of self and community. Taken as a whole, this work is simply a personal view of moments that have a presence of us as people, and is my projection of what is important”(Martin).
