Whether it is an old barn or an abandoned building we drive past things daily that have been abandoned, lost or forgotten. It may be a rusty old car or a left behind child’s toy. The theme is open to interpretation. The show is open to photography only.
Opening Reception: Sat., January 14, 2017, 5:00 – 7:00pm
* ABOUT THE JURORS
Rebecca Skinner: Photographing abandoned sites tell a story and document the passage of time. They are places that have been forgotten and left behind for nature to take over. It is a meditation. It is quiet and still. You can hear only sounds of your footsteps, water dripping, the wind. You can smell the age, the mold, the moss. You try not to leave footprints. You don’t want to ruin the appearance of desolation. You want to leave the place as you found it. Move nothing, change nothing. There is beauty in these places. There is history. A freezing of time. There is sadness… You are alone.
Linda Jane: I am a fine art photographer of abandoned locations. My goal is for people to see, “The Beauty of Decay Through My Eyes.” I want you to look at my images and feel like you’re standing right beside me. Smelling what I smell, seeing what I see, feeling what I feel. I want people to see the beauty of decay and not just another abandoned building.
