While walking along unfamiliar streets, paths, and hallways I make photographs that communicate a sense of place through architectural and other distinctive regional details. I document typically overlooked surfaces, long-exposed to time and use to show evidence of a changing, aging world. Light and shadow further accentuate these aspects.
I was enamored with the juxtaposition of the ugly “modern” colorless electrical and phone box against the beautiful old stained glass. The light raking across the wall accentuated ancient carved graffiti as well as necessary conduit since the wiring can’t be hidden within solid stone walls.
