Architectural photographer Michael K. Wilkinson has been wandering the streets of Washington DC with a camera since he moved to the city from Brooklyn in 1993. From the late 1990s and into the early 2000s, using black & white film, he sought to document an oft-overlooked element of the streetscape: row house and storefront churches.
Located mostly in underdeveloped neighborhoods, many of these small houses of worship have vanished since these photographs were taken, as real estate and commercial development have swept across the city in ever-expanding waves.
