February 1st ForgottenTennessee. com will have it’s first show at the Copper Vault in Springfield, TN. ForgottenTennessee.com will be up for the month so should you get a chance you should come out and see it. The reception will be on the 15th 5pm-8pm. All together I’ll have 15 to 20 pieces up, most 18×24 a few other pieces will be larger. I hope you see you at the reception.
After meeting with HN James, the Copper Vaults Curator I decided to grab my camera and do some shooting. I started out with the Downtown area walking about with my camera and tripod.
Springfield has I noticed a large assortment of wonderfully eclectic buildings. The entrances and alleys of these buildings are really fascinating and I gravitated towards them. One alley in particular caught and retained my eye.
After about an hour of wandering the square I Spread outwards. And hit some roads near the areaI was in. I was not disappointed in what I found.
I found Springfield to be a gold mine of buildings to shoot! This was however not my first trip to Springfield. Previously I’d shot with a few models in a hulking abandoned structure that at one time had been a Wool Mill built in 1908.
This structure is so vast that the last time I shot there I realized I could shoot the location every day for a month and I doubt I could capture more than 1/2 the place. Sadly some of the wings have collapsed. I’d heard recently the Springfield Glass Co. had taken ownership of the building. I truly hope they can repair the structure and it would be nice if the State Historic Society could help repair it as well. This old mill is exactly why I started doing ForgottenTennessee.com
I hope you enjoyed reading this update and I encourage you all to stop by the Copper Vault to see my show Feb 1-Feb 28th. If you would like to purchase a 2018 ForgottenTennessee.com calendar you may do so at http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/1390399
