Projects

A series of 10 images captured by Alejandro Nolan on Georges Island during the 2021 Historias de Boston program. Fort Warren is a location with a very storied history, one that can be easily misinterpreted. It presents itself as an extensive military base, but it actually served many different purposes over its existence.
Legacy of Fort Warren explores many points throughout the satial and chronological expanses Fort Warren exists in.
