"With this current series, I have captured areas throughout the country that illuminate both the degeneration and design of desolate landscapes. These scenes embody a feeling of remoteness and contain some form of marker that provides the viewer with evidence of their former life.  Since growing up in rural Illinois, I have been interested in these types of locations. There was always a sense of exploration with these areas and that fascination has continued into my photography."
