Belonging to her decade-long series, Your Town Tomorrow, this image exemplifies Corine Vermeulen’s community driven exploration of her adopted city of Detroit, MI. While residing in the city since 2006, Vermeulen has documented the residents of Detroit who have lived throughout the city’s financial and societal transitions. This portrait of a young activist bears an uncanny resemblance to Walker Evans’ famous depression era portrait of a tenant farmer’s wife, Allie Mae Burroughs. Though these images are separated by nearly a century the resemblance speaks to the enduring dignity of working people. Vermeulen earned a BFA from the Design Academy Eindhoven, a MFA in photography from the Cranbrook Academy of Art.
