I took these photos inside several abandoned homes, and I was fascinated by the messages and artwork throughout the houses.
Echoes of the past.
Words that perhaps outlived their own scribes.
I experimented a little in post-production to reflect the decay I felt and experienced just walking through those deserted rooms.
Walls that once cradled happy (or not-so-happy) memories now housing empty spaces—spaces that followed me weeks after the shoot.
