The Columbia Pike Documentary Project (CPDP) has been actively photographing the extraordinarily diverse Columbia Pike corridor in Arlington, Virginia, one of the world’s most culturally-varied and colorful communities. “The Pike” is home to an extraordinary number of immigrants from nearly every nation on the planet, to historically-significant African-American communities, and to a range of long-term and new residents and businesses of every background, flavor, and description. Since 2007, I have have been the chief photographer on the project, and have led a team of talented team of photographers including Paula Endo, Xang Mimi Ho, Duy Tran, and Aleksandra Lagkueva who have also been adding their work and vision to this community effort. All the photos on this page are by Lloyd Wolf. Support for this work has come from the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, the Arlington Commission for the Arts, the Columbia Pike Revitalization Organization, the Arlington Community Foundation, and others. Many thanks. For more images and information on the Columbia Pike Documentary Project, please visit the CPDP blog
