A boarded up storefront on College Avenue in the inner-city of Indianapolis that has the phrase In a 'PERFECT World' painted on it. Chalk is provided for people to write their ideas. In a perfect world we would love our neighbors.

In a PERFECT World... #1

This abandoned storefront is on College Avenue, just south of 38th Street on the east side of Indianapolis. An envelope of chalk hangs on the boarded-up window, so that passers-by can complete the sentence, "In a PERFECT world..."

Some of the stuff written on the board is just names and graffiti, but two of the writers expressed a desire for a world with more love: "In a PERFECT world you'd luv your neighbor." and "In a PERFECT world we would love "


Update: I didn't make it back to this place for many years after the last time I photographed it. In early 2024, I discovered that this building and its beautiful limestone facade had been demolished at some point after my last visit in 2016.

by Christopher Crawford

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
