Location #1: Near Boston, Logan Airport

2011 May 2

Red Sox Nation! Not to worry, the Big Apple will get their chance in due time. Whether you can catch a photo on your approach to Logan Airport or happen to live in the area, here’s your chance to have your photos alongside Michael Manheim’s Documerica images from 1973. Manheim’s task from EPA was to document noise pollution in the East Boston neighborhood around Neptune Road at the time.

Manheim captured powerful images of the community, illustrating its uncomfortable proximity to one of the nation’s busiest airports and the plight of residents living under the landing path of jets on the approach to Logan’s busy runways.
