The places I have photographed are listed in the National Trust for Historic Preservation's 11 Most Endangered lists. I chose these specific places because I was interested in the diversity of subject matter and the common thread of impermanence that brought them together. These places exist simultaneously in the present and in history; they lure me in with the promise of revealing something beyond the peeling paint. They arrive on this list with the threat of obsolescence, embodying an existence between survival and loss, caught in a struggle to remember why they stand. I aim to capture that struggle, the in-between state, and in some cases, the inevitable end.
