Time’s Meddling Fingers
Last May, my friend Jessica and I traveled to Sharon Springs together for a magazine assignment. It was my third visit and Jessica’s first. She immediately loved the atmosphere of the town with its mix of vibrant new businesses and the crooked and gnarled architectural relics of its former hayday as a spa-resort town. One morning, Jessie went out to explore the streets without me, taking only her camera with her. An adventurous soul, it wasn’t long before she found herself inside some of the abandoned bath houses in the town, snapping shots of the decaying bellies of these once proud and bustling places. I love these photos and find them to be very beautiful, despite the ruinous nature of the subject matter. I love the colours, the textures and especially the patterns of time, which are so harshly apparent. If you have not yet seen Sharon Springs for yourself, please do consider making the trip.
