I was able to photograph a former rehab clinic in the south side of Chicago. It was an incredible exploration. More photos can be found here.
An excerpt about my sustained and so far unsuccessful job search on the American Urbex website.
When I am photographing an urbex location I see remnants of the American Dream. I see it in the ingenuity of the massive steel machines left behind in factories. I see it in the peeling paint on an abandoned home. I see it in the fading logo of an American made pickup trapped in a collapsed garage. When reconciling the past with the present I can’t help but wonder when America will wake up from the dream. One thing I try to accomplish with my photography is to show comfortable Americans that, yes, this nightmare is the part of the American Dream that is conveniently omitted.
If you have any job leads, I’d like to know.
