Piece description from the artist

Forgotten America is what interests me as an artist. My passion lies within exploring the unknown or the ignored, and capturing it before it disappears forever.

I have always been drawn to textured surfaces and the patinas that evolve over time on the exteriors and interiors of abandoned buildings, to historic structures that are being renovated, and to the Mom & Pop stores that have not changed since they opened decades before. I’ve been determined to capture those moments in time before urban developers erase and take over their DNA forever. Time is of the essence and time is a huge factor in trying to document these structures and neighborhoods that have a certain and unique character separate from other areas of their city. This is what’s frustrating as you see the diversity being replaced by a more uniform design and feel which loses its original intent and purpose.

Traveling back and forth to New York, Philadelphia and other smaller urban pockets, you can see the acceleration of this madness and often hear the same comments from people not identifying with there environment who express concern and say “this is not my city anymore.”
