The Possible City Essays
The Possible City is a series of visually-rich adventures, exploring ecological solutions through the life and lens of Patrick M. Lydon, an American-born artist and author living in East Asia since 2011. Independently produced, these stories take us into real places and mindsets where solutions spring from a combination of common sense, dedication, and a deep sense of wonder for the world.
