Debby Besford has found an intriguing way to fuse landscape, memory and history in her photography.
Her project, The Venetian Waterways combines vintage postcards from her father’s collection with contemporary landscape photos of Great Yarmouth.
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.
