As the Dog Days of Summer were winding down we took a little hiatus with posting content to the blog. But now that Labor Day has come and gone and most working professionals are back in the swing of things we’re ramping up our social media presence and hope we’ll bring you interviews, information trends and tie-bits that you’ll enjoy.
First up is another edition of “The Art of the Personal Project” with Yodelist contributor Suzanne Sease. Suzanne and photographer Scott Lowden discuss his series of photos depicting an abandoned building located off a Pennsylvania highway. Says Scott:
“Once I decided I needed to shoot (here) I tapped a great local resource…my nieces and nephew. Imagining their differing personalities and being forced to spend a long afternoon shooting, Lord of the Flies, the novel by William Golding, immediately came to mind… of course only loosely. I wanted to focus on children exploring desolate space, but with a more lifestyle and upbeat lens.”
The story he decided to tell is quite different from what one would expect and is definitely worth checking out below.
