Looking at life through nano-coated lenses

As We Are Now – 2014

I’ve continued work on this project in 2014; this is a collection of some of my favorites from the first half of the year. They were taken in upstate New York and Texas. You can find more images from this series on the As We Are Now series page.

This series is exploring the subject of modern cemetery folk art – both what is inscribed on gravestones and the artifacts of human emotion left by others, which could span a range from personal messages to loved ones to ordinary objects bearing some unknown significance. This project is also creating a record of how this folk art appears around the time it is created. As a visit to the older section of any cemetery will bear out, time and the elements inevitably take their toll on this kind of folk art.
