This series discloses the active, unfurling development of disconnection from ourselves, our homes and our lands that were once considered havens, but are now heavy with a stagnant emotional residue. With a dense midwestern makeup, these photographs reveal the constant fight between self assurance and self destruction while our loved ones watch the battle. The act of removing the subjects' presence in this series, enforces the sentiment of displaced souls that are withdrawn. Preserving Decadence croons, not only the lack of connection, but the perception of dilapidating self worth, how it's perceived amongst those around us, and the visible debris we unknowingly leave in our surroundings.
