Memory of a Space: Series I
Memory of a Space
The abandoned sites that capture the attention of Jessie Chaney in her series Memory of a Space hold stories of the past, of changing times. Crumbling ruins, dilapidated buildings and remnant industrial structures left behind from time gone by are gradually returning to the earth – although some will last much longer than others. Entropy, and nature’s reclamation of the built environment, are often captured in a forlorn or even morose manner when photographers focus on the loss and damage of a defunct structure. Chaney takes different approach, finding beauty in crumbling decay.
