On our doorstep

A photo essay
On+our+doorstep
Maegan Seaman

While walking the neighborhoods in the district, it’s interesting to stop and take notice of the little things.

In the fast paced environment of American University, it can be so easy to become caught up in classes, work and everything else on campus.

Every once in a while, it’s nice to take a step outside and appreciate the beauty that is right on our doorstep.

D.C. row houses most commonly feature a mixture of Federal, Victorian and Romanesque Revival style architecture.

This, paired with the bright colors and soft pastels commonly found lining the streets, gives each and every home a unique feel.

Each door offers an expression of those who live behind it.

This essay is an example of a photographic typology, or a group of photos that share high levels of consistency.

One of the most famous examples of this are Bernd and Hilla Becher’s ‘Water Towers’ (1972-2009).

This format allows each door to be placed together in comparison and demonstrates the beauties they hold.
