Jonathan Alvira’s “Last Reminisce of a Culturally Thriving Downtown”
Jonathan Alvira is a photographer and third generation Phoenician. Part of an ongoing series documenting Downtown Phoenix, these photos have been taken over a number of years. Jonathan explains,
I am just trying to document the last reminisce of what was a culturally thriving downtown Phoenix. People are under the impression that Phoenix is nothing but a bunch of suburbs and hardly a city at all. I just want to show that there once was a thriving downtown and these are the few people and places that still exist in the decay of the real central Phoenix.
