For this first-of-a-kind article in Modern Denver, writer Kevin Janowiak So looked at affordable housing developments around Denver and spoke to some area architects that are working hard to balance the scales.

PHOTO ESSAY

“Residue” is the title of photographer Greg Friedler’s photo essay for this issue. It is a re-purposing of urban signage and urban communication and consists of original photographic images made of tiny slivers of graffiti tags, residue left behind from the creation of these graffiti tags or any given cover up of the graffiti tag by differing authorities.
