In 2005-06 Gould teamed up with students at NUA to produce the Providence Project, a citywide photographic survey supported by the Rhode Island Foundation’s New Works program. The project, which was exhibited at NUA, investigated the rapidly changing landscape of Providence, particularly documenting spaces and architecture affected by new development.
