Item #5 DAVID CARMACK
I have a reverence for things, living or inanimate, that have a long history. To me, the visible signs of aging are what lend beauty and intrigue to most any subject. Whether the wrinkles and folds of a face well beyond youth, the peeling paint of an abandoned barn, the rust of a proud industrial bridge, or a
stonewall with lichen and moss; I’m drawn to those things among us that have stories to tell. I make these old and timeless things the subject of my photographs because, in addition to finding them aesthetically beautiful, I also feel it’s important to document them at a particular point in time.
Their appearance has changed through their lifetime and will continue to change through age, decay and sometimes renewal.
