In every Backdrop, we ask one student photographer to explore the photo reality of their hometown or college town. (Photography by Hunter Harwick, University of North Texas)

North Texas student Hunter Harwick explores the washed out pastels of his home town.

Corpus Christi is riddled with interesting buildings and architecture. There are so many warehouses, strip malls and other types of buildings that were once so alive in the ’50s and ’60s but have now fallen into disrepair.

I chose to photograph these buildings so they can be put back in the limelight again, like they were back in their time. My hope for this city is that leadership is put into place that allows everyone the opportunity to appreciate the rich histories this city has to offer with its buildings, so that they can one day take on a new life.
