The images in this gallery represent more recent digital color work. I have continued driving the backroads, where family farms and all sorts of structures from the last century are still to be found. North Carolina has a rich agricultural history. With the aid of an Arts and Science Council grant I began documenting the state’s iconic tobacco barns in 2015. My explorations have branched into South Carolina where whole areas have been bypassed by development. I pass small towns of empty storefronts,  generations of rusted farm machinery and barns gradually being overtaken by vines. Hauntinly beautiful churches are evocative of another age.  I seek out the survivors; the odd, hand-built, idiosyncratic, no longer valued.
