BOWTIE JOINT: THE ABANDONED SERIES - NEW YORK

 

BOWTIE JOINT:

 

THE ABANDONED SERIES - NEW YORK

 

MODEL:  ANDRA WISHOM.  

 

THE ABANDONED BUILDING SERIES IS AN ONGOING PROJECT THAT COMBINES THESE AWESOME STRUCTURES/LOCATIONS WITH BOW TIE CIGARS AND FASHION.  THIS COMBINATION, FOR ME, IS THOROUGHLY AMAZING AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE A PART OF THE BOW TIE CIGAR ADVERTISING SCHEME.  AS WELL AS, MY ARTISTIC CONTRIBUTION TO CIGAR CULTURE; A CULTURE I LOVE AND REPRESENT!

 

ABANDONED BUILDINGS ARE INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS SITES.  PHOTOGRAPHING THEM IS NOT SOMETHING I TAKE LIGHTLY.  PLEASE DO MUCH RESEARCH ON A LOCATION, BEFORE SHOOTING THERE.  IT IS MY PRAYER THAT NO ONE (INCLUDING MYSELF) EVER BE IN HARM’S WAY, SHOOTING A LOCATION WITHIN THIS CATEGORY.  PLEASE BE SAFE.

 

“ONE OF MY FAVORITE SUBJECTS TO SHOOT IS A LONG FORGOTTEN STRUCTURE BEING SLOWLY TAKEN BACK BY NATURE. THESE BUILDINGS SPEAK OF DAYS GONE BY AND WHISPERED STORIES THAT HAVE LONG FADED FROM THE WALLS. PHOTOGRAPHING ABANDONED LOCATIONS IS NOT FOR THE TIMID PHOTOGRAPHER.  THERE IS STILL BEAUTY LEFT IN THESE OLD BUILDINGS; IT JUST REQUIRES A LITTLE WORK TO SHOW EVERYONE ELSE WHAT YOU SEE.”  SHEENA KOONTZ

 

TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS THAT INSPIRE ME GREATLY, IN REGARDS TO THIS PROJECT, AND PHOTOGRAPHY IN GENERAL, ARE GORDON PARKS AND JASON LANIER.

 

SINCERELY, BOWTIE.
