Under Construction & Deconstructions and Remains

Under Construction is a collection of construction sites images from all over the world and Deconstructions and Remains is an investigation of abandoned buildings in the vicinity of Shenandoah, Pennsylvania, shot during May of 2015. My intention with both of these books was to create a photographic elegy; a meditation on the way history has altered the surfaces of these buildings and heightened our awareness of the impermanence of the present.  Boarded shut, these buildings stand as artifacts; their brick and shingles holding on to the past as the forces of nature, sometimes aided by a wrecking crew, deconstruct them.
