And suddenly nearly 6 months have passed. Rachel and I are living in Raleigh, North Carolina. We headed down here at the end of December. It’s been 10 years since I’ve lived in the south, and now that I’m back, I’m turning my camera onto the places that stick out in my memories of growing up here. Places I was obsessed with as a kid due to ghost stories and folk tales, and places where the unending alterations of time and technology are either apparent or seemingly absent.
I’m still honing in on process and approach, but so far 4x5 and pinhole have played a big role along with the precious few packets of Polaroid Type 55 that I lucked into at an estate sale back in the summer. So far I’ve been around Raleigh, finding Cry Baby Lane, and near Siler City to go to the Devil’s Tramping Ground. More places around North Carolina are on my radar soon!
