The photo: One is one’s own worst enemy. Our minds are filled with emotions, fears, memories of things which we’d all rather forget. We try so hard to hide them, cover them up, and store them by truckloads (or barn-loads?) in the darkest corners of our heads. There they rest and mature, waiting for the smallest hint of opportunity to surface. I bet reading this was already enough opportunity for you to start thinking of something you’d rather not be thinking of. I am sorry. This capture is meant to portray the barn as an entity which has grown a personality. Abandoned and desperate, it looms over everything that approaches. The protagonist in this capture doesn’t stand a chance against such a strong creature, yet is facing it without fear. It almost appears as though both the human and the abandoned barn have a feeling of uncertainty towards one another, yet are drawn to come together and face each other. The black and white essence of the photo suggests the mood of this story which is complemented by the soft texture of the Hahnemühle’s Museum Etching Fine Art Paper ascribing the print an almost dream-like appearance.

Behind the scenes: If you look on the map, you will see how truly “in the middle of nowhere” was this photo taken. Unlike some photographers, I do not record the exact location of my photos when they are taken, meaning that behind the captures presented on our website are the hours of painstaking google-mapping. Sure, some photos are easier to map than others, but that was not the expectation for this photo. Imagine my surprise when the nearly exact location of this photo appeared before my eyes when I threw the little street-view guy, from several kilometers scale, into a completely random spot on the map. Coincidence?
