Thank you 4Culture and King County for purchasing Northern State Hospital Farm 2008

Northern State Hospital Farm 2008

I would like to thank 4Culture and King County for purchasing this piece, for their portable works collection. This image is one of thousands of an ongoing Photographic love affair with northern state hospital farm of Sedro Woolley, Wa.


This is the image that has stuck in my head through out the years whenever I contemplate this space. The photograph is part of an edition of 20, some of which are still available for purchase.


Northern State Farm

It has been awhile since I had visited this special place. To see it in such a state I was glad I came when I did.  Two different roofs collapsed, photographs there only memory of being whole.

weird to see something, actively pursue visiting some place where the decline is fast and no one is stopping it. the details wash away, distilled into some vague form of what used to be there, like having applied a photoshop filter too often and ended up with some vague recollection of what was. 

Interesting day in all the skies were filled with fire smoke from Everett Northwards, really weird, I have never lived someplace where I experienced the repercussions of forest fires before.

Can't say it makes me happy, in fact it makes me cry for the trees an awful lot but people who know me probably wouldn't be too surprised about this, I have empathy to spare, and some seem to have none.
