A Humble History

So often we pass glimpses of our history without really noticing.  We may see the empty building with broken windows and vines crawling up the walls, but do we truly see the beauty of that space?  Perhaps we see the structure itself, but we don’t see its simple, lovely past.  My goal is to capture the energy of these places and remind us that people lived their lives in these spaces. Teachers taught, children sang, preachers preached, we loved, lost, learned and celebrated. Imagine doorknobs, windows, paint flakes, fixtures and tools are intriguing clues to a humble history that’s within our sight.

I would love for these photographs to help remind us where we came from and who we are.
