Our Legacy – More Photography by Jeremy Blakeslee

Our modern world is a complicated mess of past, present and future.  What we created in the past doesn’t simple deteriorate, or even become incorporated into new structures.  We pile up steel, concrete, cement, iron and other materials that do not rot or or easily decay.  They may rust, which is in itself an entirely different problem, but unlike wood or natural stone they don’t go back to a natural environment because they are not from the natural environment.  Jeremy Blakeslee is a “Photographer and Urban Archeologist specializing in the documentation of historical industrial architecture, machinery, infrastructure and mines.” VIA  This series catalogs various unused parts of the railroad complex across the United States of America since the first railroad was incorporated in 1827.    You can see more of Jeremy Blakeslee’s work on his website HERE.  My other post on his work is HERE.
