Eastside, Long Beach is a map I made in 2007 of the Eastside, a neighborhood in Long Beach, California, measuring nearly 3 square miles. I lived in the Eastside for the two and a half years that I lived in Long Beach and attended Long Beach State University.

I made the map by walking every side of every street and, with the camera at chest level and pointed away from the street and toward the buildings/houses, making an exposure every-other step. Every block is represented as one image, consisting of however many steps it took me to traverse it. Each image is oriented on the map in the direction I walked it. So a block walked North to South would be viewed upside-down from a block walked South to North.

The map was made in the night hours over the course of a few Autumn months.
