About the Book
The photographs in this book explore the notion of permanence through the evolution of aesthetics and design. Though I am relatively young, with each passing year I see more of the objects, styles, and buildings of my childhood fall out of favor or into disrepair and be replaced by new. This visual changing of the guard fascinates me. In these photos I am observing change. I am collecting souvenirs; visual mementos of things I know will not last forever. I am documenting decay and cataloging the juxtaposition that happens in the process. It's the visual narrative of my life.
