Abandoned – The Series

My purpose in making images of abandonment in the American west rests in my hopes of preserving and sharing the history, the culture, and the dreams that shaped the west. Connecting with abandonment can be as daunting as it is interesting. Stories don't come easy and they resonate with me on many levels of emotion. I make my images by trying to convey what abandonment may have felt like to those whose dreams were shattered. It is also a documentary on the idea that abandonment affects all levels of society whether it be personal or commercial. I hope my viewers will experience and connect with that feeling much like I did.
