Today we are joined by David Schalliol. David is currently in the sociology program at the University of Chicago. His work focuses on the processes that facilitate social organization and disorganization in urban context. David is the author of the photography book Isolated Building Studies. His recently published, photography filled essay “Debt and Darkness in Detroit” can be found on The Society Pages. David joins us today to talk about the relationship between sociology and photography, and his use of both to understand the built environment.
