Parker Stewart captures the subtleties of where he has spent the last four years of his life: Savannah, Georgia. Take a look at the whole series titled “Slowly, Over Time” which he shot on 4×5 large format film. Parker states “I have been here long enough to see things change and see things stay the same; the beauty lies in both.”
