As We Are Now – Summer 2012

These are some of my favorite photos for the As We Are Now series from the summer of 2012. This year I have been exploring the subject of modern cemetery folk art from a somewhat broader (and hopefully deeper) perspective. While I’m still very interested in the subject matter itself, I’m more sensitive these days to context – to the settings that may surround the folk art I’m photographing. These photos were taken in upstate New York and Vermont.
