For the past fifteen years I have focused my camera on the vacant architecture of America’s nineteenth and twentieth centuries, buildings now abandoned to a waning industrial era.

These structures hold the echoes of time and memory, as they reveal a pervasive beauty, carried on the light; within the shadows, the zeitgeist of a nation resides.

Photography has the means to reach deeply into the psyche…in the vicinity of the heart chakra, I encompass vast spaces, often in the humblest of places.

Each building I have photographed has a distinct character; all have imbued me with a sense of reverence.

The creation of large-scale works invites the viewer to enter the image. True to the initial exposure, the photograph speaks directly.
