I wanted to explore the destruction and abandonment of the “American Small Town”. This project took me through Texas and Oklahoma but I would like to continue it across the nation. The first of three part of this series focused on the destruction of the small towns.
For the next part of the series, I focused on the abandonment of small town. I went to small Texas towns in the middle of the night to capture a true sense of abandonment.
For this part of my series I wanted to take pictures from the inside of the small town, looking out. I focused on diners, since most small towns have a diner in the town center. Also diners are usually the last thing to close before a town is completely abandon or destroyed.
