Pre-Abandoned

Photography has a rich tradition of capturing the abandoned home, often showing the physical marks of the deterioration of the inhabitants' lives. In this series I am exploring the beginning of this lifecycle by capturing new residential construction in master-planned communities. Where others see the hope and possibilities of a new home, I see "pre-abandoned spaces:" the American dream promised by the model homes unfulfilled by financial missteps, broken relationships, or simply the realities of the hardships of life.
