Photographer Kenneth Wajda started a photo-blog this year about the people of Lyons. He’s turned his work into a book being released this week.
He thought the “I Am Lyons, Colorado” project would get him out into the community. But he also wanted to help people connect with their neighbors in the foothills town.
He’s taken dozens of pictures of townspeople just going about their everyday lives.
The massive flooding that hit Lyons on September 11th changed those lives. It wrecked homes and businesses, and cut off the town from the much of the surrounding area.
But Wajda continued his work and captured images of residents responding to the destruction, even as he himself had to evacuate his home.
