Sitting Room, 2019, Digital photograph, $750.00

My passion is photographing buildings that have been left for nature to overtake. Growing up in a small hamlet, and going to school in historic Cooperstown allowed me the opportunity to embrace the elegance of old buildings, and enjoy their beauty in ways that many look past.

I have been lucky enough in my travels to explore buildings that have some historical significance, which has allowed me the opportunity to help retain a digital preservation of these sites. My photography explores the connection between people and their possessions.

In a world that is plagued by the constant desire for material things it is so interesting to explore these buildings, and see what is left behind when the time comes. The viewer is left with the reality check that life is only temporary, and our desire for physical objects is fleeting, and far less substantial than that of our emotional connections.
