About This Image

This lonely old cotton warehouse in this print is located in the small town of Byromville in rural Georgia. I stumbled over this old structure by the railroad tracks one fall afternoon. The late afternoon sunlight was a real treat with the golden grasses and the old red brick of the warehouse. There was a timeless feel to the print and you could almost imagine trains loaded with bales of cotton on adjacent tracks. But those days are long past.

Byromville is near my hometown in a neighboring rural county, but the story there is not that different from many rural towns in the south. The community was founded around the mid 1850’s but not incorporated until 1905. In the 21st century, less than 500 people call this Byromville home. The days of King Cotton have passed and a lot of small town America like this slowly slips into a vanishing past. In bigger towns that were less dependent on local agriculture, old cotton warehouses may find a new use, but in much of rural Georgia, the people who call these places home get to watch these old buildings crumble.

These are the sort of places I love to photograph. It always feels to me that I may be preserving these communities and their architecture in my photos. I certainly hope these little towns turn around and find new life and purpose. Certainly in a world where telecommuting is possible, it seems like there should be a way. But if some of them don’t make it, I feel better having captured the essence of these small communities before the vanish.

Do you have roots in Byromville? Or does this rustic Cotton Warehouse print speak to you on a deeper level than family roots? I hope you’ll take a moment to let me know how this print connects with you!

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
