Hartford Seen

An unprecedented photographic exploration of the Connecticut capital's past, present, and future

Hartford Seen is the first modern-day art photography book to focus on Connecticut's capital. Comprising more than 150 full-color images, it has been in the making for two decades. In this personal meditation on the city's built environment, he implements a methodical but intuitive approach, using color and meticulous compositions to evoke the city's essence, particularly the way global population flows impact the city's physical structures. Hartford Seen is meant to be taken as a whole, as a visual document that can shed light on the unique characteristics of one city's past, present, and potential futures.

Endorsements

"In Harford Seen, Delano renders visible the everyday city by offering a chromatic homage to the residents of this richly cosmopolitan metropolis. Reminiscent of the stories of other North American, postindustrial cities, the resulting collage challenges us to consider our historical relationship to people, politics and cultures constituent of urban landscapes."—Mark Overmyer-Velázquez, University Campus Director, University of Connecticut Hartford

"An important collection showcasing Delano's unique vision and ability to capture every-day moments alongside major landscape transformations in this ever-evolving city, ensuring that Hartford's stories, both large and small, are shared and remembered."—Bridget Quinn-Carey, CEO of Hartford Public Library

"With the images in Hartford Seen Pablo Delano captures the delicate balance between architectural permanence and the evanescence of community—a celebration of generations of residents and the structures they've shaped."—Wm. Frank Mitchell, Executive Director, The Amistad Center for Art & Culture
