Forgotten : A Study of Backwoods Carolina
I have never lived somewhere like North Carolina. It has taken some getting used to but I have to say that I have come to love it. The laid back life style, southern charm and continued quest for family values have been so comforting and made it feel like home from the beginning. I have become fascinated as of late with driving off the main highway and observing a whole different world that the modern world has left behind. Homes, barns and sheds abandoned to be reclaimed by the earth. The vegetation here in the South is a force to be reckoned with and the way it takes over these man made structures intrigues me. I find it beautiful, haunting and lonely at the same time. This is a collection I will probably be adding to and changing over time but I wanted to share some of my initial photographs of the backwoods of North Carolina.
