Ghost Town - Bank Closed

Rhyolite bank and stock exchange building as it stands today. Think someone made a run on the bank?
My 2008 residency at the Goldwell Open Air Museum's Red
Barn Center in Rhyolite Nevada, all started as an
adventure without much of a plan. For once, I wanted to
see what I would do if I had nothing else to do but to
make art, and I wanted to see what the place would
inspire without pre-thinking (over-thinking) the process
of making images.
With open mind and open views all around me, I set out
to build my guiding compass. I could start off every day
by building a little of the compass, then head off in
that direction and let the muses do the rest. I did just
that, resulting in the most delightful unstructured
routine possibly of my adult life.
The Ghost Town series are photographs that I took while
walking around and searching for references for my
woodcuts. The desert really yields some awesome images.
