Print: Home

Along the side a winding mid-western highway was a single house, guarded by a sea of weeds. Sunken and defeated, it sat in the cold. Windows shattered, awnings collapsed, paint peeling. A certain presence radiated from its darkened doorways. Something watching and waiting, lurking in the shadows, was hoping I would step inside.

But I didn't. Hell no. Not alone, at least. I mean, look at this house!

I made this print in my darkroom using my new Omega D4 enlarger. It's a pretty epic piece of equipment. To make the negative, I used my Mamiya C330 with a 105mm lens.
