Looking at life through nano-coated lenses

Posts from the ‘As We Are Now’ category

I took many photographs for this project in 2015; this is a collection of some of my favorites from the year. They were taken in upstate New York, Vermont and Texas. You can find more images from this series on the As We Are Now series page.

In 2015 I continued exploring the subject of modern cemetery folk art from a somewhat broader (and hopefully deeper) perspective. I’ve continued my attention on artifacts of human emotion – which could span a range from personal messages to loved ones to tokens bearing some unknown significance.

I was down in Texas last week, visiting family and enjoying some great weather. (Certainly much nicer than cold and gloomy upstate New York!)  While there I made a lot of photographs, including about 30GB-worth for the As We Are Now series. I’m currently going through and culling/processing the best of those images, and will soon post a selection here.

Meanwhile, here’s a photo of an old gravestone that offers a variation of the popular epitaph that inspired the name of this series.

“Remember me as you pass by…” – Union Hill, TX 11/9/2012

 Remember me as you pass by

As you are now so once was I

As I am now so you shall be

Prepare for death and follow me
