As an urban planner passionate about community engagement and positive change, Daniel Hewes has developed an interest in photography projects capturing positive architectural changes in cities through urban planning and other efforts.
There is no better way to capture the beauty of a city and its progress than through photography and art. Architectural and urban planning can help transform a city allowing it to thrive and develop sustainable healthy habits. Showing these changes in artistic ways is a great way to get the community inspired and involved in city growth.
Throughout his career, Daniel Hewes has connected with and followed numerous artists and photographers around Boston and other cities. Some of his favorite projects and portfolios include work from 7521 Photography as well as photographer Chuck Choi.
Created by urban planner and University of Pittsburgh graduate, Tobin Stuff, 7521 Photography strives to capture positive change within the community through beautiful and inspiring photos of different areas and aspects of the city.

Another favorite photographer of Daniel Hewes is Chuck Choi. For over 25 years, Chuck Choi has documented some of the the most inspiring and significant architectural and design work in Boston and surrounding cities. You can find his photography in major design publications based in the United States and all across the globe. Having studied photography and architecture at Princeton, Chuck Choi has a strong knowledge and grasp of spatial depiction and its importance in human society.
Often when we come across awesome photography on social media, we take a few seconds to “like” it before we continue scrolling to the next image or post without really taking the time to understand story and meaning behind the photograph. It is the hope of Daniel Hewes and other urban planners and photographers that these artistic perspectives will inspire individuals to be more engaged and involved with community growth by taking action to build upon positive change.
