Inspired by Duane Michals’ Empty New York exhibition from the 1960’s, I decided to grab my Nikon D5200 and head out into my home town of Decatur, Georgia early one Sunday morning. The resulting images capture scenes from our small town devoid of people. Taken individually, they offer interesting glimpses of human infrastructure without the humans. When viewed as a set, they create an eerie feeling of abandonment, as if the city’s population was abducted by aliens or evacuated due to an epidemic.
At any rate, I hope you enjoy looking at these images as much as I enjoyed creating them.
