I started a yet-to-be-named project which centers on older homes found it the small towns around the Peoria area. There is a certain aesthetic I am looking for, that is a bit hard to explain. While often there is a certain dystopian feel to this work, there is no intention to go down a dark and cynical path.
Another reason for these pictures is to offer a counterbalance to the cookie-cutter neighborhoods we live in or around. The houses come from a different area where, not only the architecture is much different but also the color and textures of the homes as well.
Not sure where this will all lead, but this project definitely will lead to suspicious questions by strangers as I am photographing homes.
