Artist statement

“The Forgivable Landscape,” is a series of photographs that depicts the inescapable decomposition of the human dwelling by focusing on the vulnerability of man and all that he creates. When looking at a decaying building there is a powerful and yet silent sense of inevitability; a sense that things will continue to transform from their initial form. These establishments cry of abandonment and loneliness while they stand muted in their own forgotten world. Worn by time these structures succumb to the fleeting decomposition that echoes through history. This series is an exploration into the transient nature that radiates through abandoned homes and buildings throughout the southeast portion of the United States.
