Industrial Evolution is a photographic series documenting
Seattle’s industrial district in transition under the shadow of
economic recession and the pull of overseas manufacturing. It
is a look at the history, the current success and struggles, and
the future of this industrial center within an increasingly tech
driven region and city.

Started in 2011, the project captures the diverse landscape,
residents and people, and the confluence of the traditional
industries with new businesses: start-up companies emerging
alongside traditional steel mills, martial arts studios making
neighbors with cement factories, the changing character and feel
of south of downtown seattle captured in silver-gelatin print.

Howard Hsu is a documentary photographer and multimedia
reporter based in seattle, wa. He also teaches photography at
Shoreline Community College and Photo Center Northwest.

The project was awarded a 2012 CityArtist grant from the the City of Seattle.
