On the first day of spring, I visited and photographed a home that has been vacant for years.

Upon inspecting the premises, I took note of the treasures left behind: music albums, political memorabilia, holy books, and family photographs to name a few. These items not only gave insight into the daily routines of the previous owner, but they also serve as preserved artifacts of a person who is no longer living.

There is a legend that claims the equinox is a time when the spiritual veil is at its thinnest--enabling the realms of the living and perished to intertwine. If this tale holds any merit, perhaps these images serve as evidence as my photographic eye was drawn to scenes and objects within the liminal space.

The series, Crossing Over developed into a collaboration after these images were shared with my dear friend and writer, Jarret Sharp, who contributed his poetic perspective.
