For the last year or so I have been working on a series called 'Dark Store' (Window Shopping in the Recession) where I have photographed store fronts, both here in Kansas and on my other travels around the U.S. during the economical recession. This series has now been edited and sent to Get The Picture and will appear in full on their website sometime next week. Here are some images from this new body of work.
The Rio is a restored Art Deco cinema in downtown Overland Park, which shows mainly art house and independent movies. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in February of 2005.
Here is a selection of new images from my continuing series about Overland Park, Kansas, where I live.
Overland Park has been consistently ranked in the top 10 best cities to live in the United States, by CNN/Money magazine. Additionally, the city was ranked one of the ‘best places to raise your kids’ and also ranked 3rd for ‘America’s 10 best places to grow up’. As a photographer this news comes as an inspiration and something of a shock to me and I have decided to explore what it is that gives Overland Park this status.
