Gilbert Plantinga – Derivates

“Culled from a larger body of work made over the past two years – much of it depicting the economic decay endemic to the rural northeast, this small series of recent pictures is a reflection on the current economic disaster and its origin (or at least its trigger point) in the housing and mortgage industry. The houses are photographed at some distance as they may be financially our of our reach. The architecture is generic and derivative – I suppose that it is far more difficult for a buyer to get financing for an architect – designed custom home. The homes are intrusive on the landscape, all of it former farmland. And the ones that are finished sit empty.”
