Description
Born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Christenberry often visited family in rural Hale County, a place that has provided the primary inspiration for his work in painting, sculpture, and photography. Particularly drawn to the region’s folk architecture, Christenberry often photographed the same site over the course of several decades. This early view of a modest building is part of a series of photographs that show the structure in decay over the years until it is eventually covered in vegetation.
