Cleveland Cultural Gardens: One World Day in Black and White

Growing up in the 80s felt like a blessing to me. Back then, technology wasn’t as advanced, and most everyday photography involved using film and film cameras. Instant results were rare, except for the pricey Polaroid camera. Films had to be completed, processed in dark labs, and then prints were made from the processed film.

I was particularly fascinated by the process and the vibes of the darkroom during my teenage years. Even today, I still believe that black and white photos carry a vintage and elegant charm. While I can’t turn back time with my Nikon DSLR, I’ve embarked on a project to use some photos captured during the One World event in 2013 at Cleveland’s Rockefeller Park.

Rockefeller Park spans approximately 200 acres on the city’s east side, stretching from Gordon Park on the lakefront to Shaker Heights. It’s a must-visit destination in Cleveland, looking particularly beautiful in the spring, summer, and fall.

The One World event in Cleveland is a lively gathering where people from different cultures come together to share music, dance, art, and food. Held at Rockefeller Park, it’s a celebration of diversity and community, bringing together people of all backgrounds to enjoy a day of cultural exchange and harmony.
