I have traveled all 50 states in pursuit of my project BARE USA. Along the way I have explored hundreds of abandoned places. I find these places and images beautiful and haunting. They throw us into the past, telling stories of the lost and forgotten. They allow us to run wild with our imagination and spark our curiosity. I often find these images are worth more than a thousand words, like a book with no ending. The story is not definite and therefore can go on forever in our minds.
