About NOPLUS and Michael Sobel

For the last 5 years, I've been wandering the streets of my hometown, documenting the rapid changes in our human landscape. Using a wide range of cameras, including an old-fashioned view camera and black and white film, I've tried to capture the "before", "during", and "after". It's been hard to keep up. The images I've curated here are not a detailed documentary. Rather, I hope they express the feelings of change for people and places.

Please enjoy these images. You can reach me through the contact page.
