For his most recent project, Seattle photographer Eirik Johnson recorded the last days of the Alaskan Way Viaduct. In the fall of 2018, the city’s Office of Arts and Culture commissioned Johnson to document the demolition of the iconic structure, which was torn down over the course of 8 months in 2019. He discusses his approach to his work and contemplates what comes next for the waterfront.
