This suite of images comes from a larger body of work I have come to refer to as, "Fading Places". Many of the places and structures I once stood before are now gone. During my twenty-plus year journey in photography I have come to discover that nothing is permanent. Making a photograph is, on some level, to acknowledge that loss is inevitable.
I am passionately interested in "America" during a time of unprecedented sprawl and homogenization. Part of this work reflects my desire to preserve cultural and socially referential vestiges unique during my lifetime.
My tool of choice is the large format camera, including a vintage 11
x 14" view camera that originated from M.G.M. Studios. A contact
image is made directly from the original negative - no enlargement is
involved. Most of my work is made from 8 X 10" negatives. My intention
is simply to describe things as they are.
