Photography embraces cultural ideas and geographical truths in this personal project. The intent is to show areas in Cleveland and surrounding communities that are deemed abandoned, run-down, or desolate, and communicate them to viewers as places that still hold a sense of heritage.
The photos show viewers that the places shown do not exist in the way they previously have. For people familiar with the locations, this strikes an immediate emotional chord without additional information needed.
A component that creates success in the postcards is relevant text on image. These supporting elements reinforce the main objective and help the viewer relate more easily with satire.
