Art Description

Photography: Photo, Textile, Fabric on Other.

In this series I combine photographs I take of animals and vintage wallpapers. I travel to abandoned homesteads, gritty ghost towns, and buildings dripping with history to photograph these exquisite wallpapers - these glorious relics of an effort made by people who wished to enjoy a simple bit of beauty inside their dwelling on the harsh and hostile American frontier. But time has had its way with these buildings, and in my own way, I take comfort in helping the grace and grandeur of these relics to live on. {see the short video of the story behind this series on the home page of my website}

I photographed this horse on a Montana ranch near Yellowstone. The floral pattern I photographed inside the S.R. Buford Store in the National Historic Landmark of Virginia City, Montana. The S.R. Buford was built in 1874 and was the town’s first brick building. The texture in the background is from plaster walls I photographed in the Hotel Meade, originally the county courthouse, built in 1875 in the ghost town of Bannack, Montana.

It is printed on exquisite Belgian linen which provides a tactile texture and incredible detail. This particular linen has inherent imperfections in the way it is woven. Therefore each print has its own unique texture, unlike traditional photographic paper in which the prints are identical to one another.
