Kent Tarbox

I would drive by old rundown barns, abandoned houses, old manufacturing apparatus, rusted out farm machinery and other vehicles and I would think to myself, that would make a great image.

Kent Tarbox is a sports photographer in Midwestern USA. His project, Road Kill, was born from hours of lonely drives between jobs.

He’s turned a series of sightings of old abandoned barns into something much deeper and revealing of the human endeavour.
