"Photographer and architect Nell Dickerson began her exploration of antebellum homesteads...[h]er passion for forgotten and neglected buildings became a plea for preservation.
Gone is a unique pairing of modern photographs and historical novella. Foote offers a heartbreaking look at one man's loss as Union troops burn his home in the last days of the Civil War. Dickerson shares fascinating and haunting photographs, shining a poignant light on the buildings which survived Sherman's burning rampage across the Confederacy, only to fall victim to neglect, apathy and poverty."
No, this title is not referring to my absence from the world of jewelry design, jewelry blogging and everything else that comes with it (if you must know, I'm having a bit of a lull in creativity and am searching for some new inspiration)...instead, this post refers to the hauntingly beautiful book, Gone: A Photographic Plea for Preservation.
