If the Walls Could Talk series #33-36

January 22, 2019  •  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. Continuation of series, images 33-36.

His daddy worked hard, like his daddy before him. Built the place up from nothin. Weren’t the same for him.  Lit out east just after the old man died. Chicago, some say.
