Fine Art Photography by Frederick M. Stevens
Heritage Collection
Ghost Towns



This set of portfolios features places where the people have moved on.  Many of these places in the west have been abandoned because the mines, the land or the money has "played out".  Some are more recent creations or side-effects of the changing culture, economy and population shifts.  Whatever their origins, these "ghost towns" have interested me for their hidden stories, traces of human presence, and the mysterious echoes of humanity showing through the waste and decay.  When I create a successful image of these places, I feel that there is an invisible portrait imbedded in each one; a person standing at a window, in a doorway or against a wall.  While they are not physically visible, they are there. ~φ~ Fred Stevens
