About

This project is about vanishing histories and my attempt to capture them. I have been traveling and photographing places listed on the National Trust for Historic Preservation's 11 Most Endangered list. This has been an ongoing project for the past 6 years. I want to use the money raised to photograph more sites and re-photograph some that have been saved and redone. I really believe that these places should be/should have been saved. This project is my way of calling attention to the matter and hopefully making more people aware of these possible losses of history. I will be making a book of this project when I amass enough images.

This money would allow me to photograph more sites and to scan and finish these images. I want to re-photograph Angel Island Immigration Station in San Francisco and the US Marine Hospital in Louisville, KY, and the Hotel Florence in the Pullman district in Chicago. I would also photograph new places in those areas, and a few new places that are listed on the newest and past 11 Most endangered lists.  Along with the places above, I'm hoping to be able to go to:

  • John Coltrane's House in NY
  • Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin
  • Deadwood Historic District
  • Historic Route 66 Motels
  • The Statler Hilton Hotel
  • Ennis House

With your support I could gain access to, and photograph all of these places along with these, I will be able to photograph those on the endangered lists in the same area.

Please support this project and help my book become a reality!

  • Poster: Doctor's Quarters, US Marine Hospital
