If The Walls Could Talk - Photo Series 1-4

May 05, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I've made hundreds of images over the years of old, abandoned homesteads, houses and barns. I am intrigued, not just by the buildings, but by the lives of the people who may have lived and worked in them.  I often imagine a story, a scenario of what might have been inside these crumbling walls, giving breath once again to the people who called it home. These are my stories, brief glimpses into the past.
