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 witness the turmoil. Preserving Decadence bellows, not only about the lack of connection, but the perception of dilapidating self worth, how its perceived amongst those around us, and the evidential debris we unknowingly leave in our surroundings.
