the abandoned land of eastern kentucky

Having never been much of a landscape photographer, it felt odd to be so drawn to this place in Eastern Kentucky, just outside of Paintsville. But there was power to be felt in not knowing who once lived on these acres of land, nor who had lived on them in the time since. With my family grazing the muddy ground, I stood in awe of the wonder in all of our eyes: wanting to understand what this place must have once been but no longer is.

  1. These are some of your best photographs that I've seen. These are haunting - the kind of images that stay with you long after you're done looking at them. I don't know much about photography but you certainly captured something in these that tell an entire story. Absolutely incredible.
