I found my subjects all around me, but in places I’ve never seen. They were in old neighborhoods, backyards, and fading businesses; places many would ignore, but where I would find the most remarkable things. What I found were relics and symbols of the Midwest, things that told of its past, its secrets, and its drama.

     ​I wanted color to tell the story with as much precision, tonality, and creative control as with black and white. I wanted to explore the relationship of color to the subject, and use it to drive the narrative. The Holga and Diana are my tools for this project; their dreamy blur, dark corners, aged look, and unique rendition of color compliment my subject matter.
