Don’t be Silly!

Don’t be silly?  You want to know what that means?  It’s the answer I’d have for someone if they asked me if I would ever be willing to stop photographing urban environments, particularly disused urban spaces.  Not on your life!  I’ll stop shooting such places when they pry my camera from my cold, dead hands!  And, if I can’t make it to an actual abandoned site to shoot, I’ll find something that looks like it very well might be abandoned.  It’s just something to which I’ve become rather addicted.  Why?  Because it speaks to me.  I ponder all that these spaces have seen over the years, whether an abandoned building, an empty alley, or something like this metro tunnel.  I think of all the people who have passed to and fro through this place, and I wonder what it has seen: day and night, dark and light; children and the elderly, the strong and infirm; cops and crooks, priests and prostitutes, life… yes, life… and death too!  These halls have seen it all, and, thanks to my camera, forever too will I!
