Photography and Writing
One of my favorite subjects – to view and to shoot.
Empty rooms? shop-floors being renovated?
Yes. I spent a number of afternoons recording the gutting and rebuild of the interior of Penn State’s Admissions Offices public spaces. One high-contrast image is among my favorites and always where I can see it. I also did a study of an abandoned private home, just south of Wilkes-Barre, PA, collapsing over time. I find the reminiscence of beauty in the abandoned and hope in rennovations.
Nice post, sir – and yes, like you, I find a sense of sympathy, a sense of things lost but lingering, in such images.
