The hallway of D.A. Hulcy Middle School.
This summer, Dallas photographer Allison V. Smith was given carte blanche to wander through the halls of nine of the 11 schools trustees voted to close earlier in the year.
"Living in Dallas, where they tear down the old and build up the modern so quickly, I thought it was important to document those places and spaces," she told NPR about the photos.
