Over the last few years, since the creation of my first book Empty Spaces, and my second book Americana Forgotten, I have often been asked when there will be a book containing my best and most notable photos. Well, I am excited to announce that it’s finally here, and will be released as a limited edition, 200-page hardcover book called “Unbuilt by Time: The World We Once Knew.”
A beautiful structure – wonderful historic architecture, complimented by the natural beauty of disastrous decay.
The track was originally opened by Enoch Staley on May 18, 1947 as a dirt track, right as NASCAR was being fully brought to life. This speedway would eventually come to host some of the most memorable races in NASCAR history.
The beautiful ruins of the Old Sheldon Church. Opened in 1753 for its first service.
Luckily, I was able to witness the smoky mountains before the recent fires, which wiped out a significant portion of the forest. In the Smoky Mountains, not only did you have the picturesque scenery and surroundings creating a natural funhouse for photographers, but you would have received one hell of a package deal if you just so happened to be a photographer whom also enjoys a good explore through forgotten structures. That’s me, by the way (for anyone reading who is unfamiliar with what I do, other than talk about cats.)
It’s not often that I get weirded out about being somewhere, but this place was quite strange.
What happens when an entire zoo falls into collapse, remaining untouched for years?
What I wasn’t expecting was nearly driving straight off of a collapsed section of road, falling straight onto a beach. On that note, don’t try to eat a Big Mac while driving.
