Forgotten Tennessee


For the better part of a decade I have been getting in my car with a sack lunch, coffee, bottles of water and my camera. Once in the car I find a back road and drive until I find the past. I’ve compiled a wonderful collection of photos over the years and I’ve named it Forgotten Tennessee. Forgotten Tennessee is my attempt to capture the past even as it vanishes. I will be updating regularly and I hope you the reader will become a fan and visit often. This fall I will be looking for spaces in the Middle Tennessee area to display Forgotten Tennessee so that it has a real world presence. Will you be able to purchase prints on this site? Yes, I am working on that, and you will of course be able to buy at the physical locations where Forgotten Tennessee is displayed.

I hope you enjoy the past as much as I enjoy capturing it.
