Divine Despair

I'm passionate about preserving historically significant architecture through photography.

There are souls who walked this worn out flooring. There was once life in these halls, sorrow, grief, and maybe a little fun. I picture their lives, their livelihood, those memories they've left behind.

Divine Despair is finding the beauty in what once was.

"Tears, idle tears, I know not what they mean,
Tears from the depth of some divine despair
Rise in the heart, and gather to the eyes,
In looking on the happy autumn-fields,
And thinking of the days that are no more."

-Lord Alfred Tennyson
