Dream Buildings

Are we all lost and far from home? I think I could build an argument around that.

~ Paul Kingsnorth, Savage Gods

The title of this series is borrowed from a friend who once created amazing sculptures and drawings based on fantastical dreams of structures he’d encountered growing up in rural Alabama.

My own dreams tend to be less vibrant, but they are also rooted in personal history, and they often involve places like the ones in these photographs, tumble-down forms that once provided shelter or sanctuary.

It would be entirely reasonable if these images initially suggest emptiness or loss, places left behind.

Looked at another way, though, I wonder if they might also whisper possibilities of remembering and reconstruction, stories ripe for the telling.
