About the Ebook
The story she tells with her photographs and prose, are passionate, humorous at times and intriguing historically. She is keenly aware of how stories can become forgotten and lost, through time. Tommie's impassioned message of keeping the story alive through documenting and shining a light upon abandoned places, ruins, old towns and objects left behind with her camera and writings, impart upon us the importance of those that came before us.
Many of the abandoned houses, church ruins, cemeteries and small towns not only have deteriorated but some of these places Tommie has documented are no longer there. Her captures and poignant story about these lost places from a bygone time, can be treasured and reminisced upon within her book, The Abandoned Story.
I have always been intrigued by the story and mystery intricately woven by those places and objects of abandonment. It is in the creating of my new painting, photograph and writing that this vision and story comes into manifestation. The story that has been left behind from abandoned places and things will never cease to exist. The story just seems to shift and bear a new light onto its observer.
