As far back as I can remember the disintegration of things past has always held a beauty for me. As a young teen I would go out and take pictures of dead plants, or peeling dead bark on old trees – this grew into a love toward old buildings no longer able to be a home but the structure still strong and filled with experiences, stories and history!
Maybe it is a metaphor of sorts for life – as we age our structure breaks down but there is still such beauty and life held within – I am not sure exactly what draws me to these buildings but I find myself photographing them often on this journey.
Whether condemned buildings boarded up in the Florida Keys or falling down historical properties in New Orleans, to the outskirts of Natchez, MS where I found the amazing old barns and buildings for the photographs in this blogpost – I am endlessly drawn to them.
