About the show:
Fading… Seattle

A documentation of vintage advertising murals and three dimensional signs throughout Seattle.

I began this project many years ago starting with the Elephant Car Wash. At that time I knew I found a project that was very special to me. I continued working on this project throughout the years carrying around a hand full of film and a fleet of Holga cameras. I have traveled through many of Seattle’s neighborhoods from the South-end to the North-end, searching for the hidden, the lost. Signs that are still being used and others that haven’t said a thing for many years... I feel drawn to photographing them.

The intent of this project is to document and preserve a part of Seattle’s advertising history as well as to celebrate this art form.
