Decay, Corrosion, Rust…
There are new shiny things all around us, but are they as interesting as an old rusted car, peeling paint on a run down building, or half fallen walls in a dilapidated castle. There is amazing beauty in the decayed, the corroded, the rusted… making those images more compelling and interesting than those of readily available brand new items!
Consider the amazing textures and colors in an abandoned, dilapidated factory, the rust on an old bike, contrasting plaster and lathing on a corroded wall and the myriad of possible captures in a junkyard. Neighborhoods, disparagingly called “run down”, are treasure troves of “decayed” tumble down houses, “corroded” discarded toys, “rusted” cars, trash cans and so on.
Decay, Corrosion, Rust…. can take many forms; black and white, color, abstract – all photographic media are welcome.
