"Photographing these sites is a solitary venture.  In deep silence, the sounds I make amplify my interruption, my intrusion on the space. They remind  me to act with grace and deference to what hap-pened here when the place was alive.


These empty spaces are monuments to the past, reminders of our future.  They are a testament to our fears.  They exist in a limbo outside the lines, behind the facade of prosperity.


The photographs are a means of preservation.  Finding small moments, splashed color here, like sparks of memory just outside our reach reminds us that they once harbored dreams and lives and the objects of our desires..."
