“I am intrigued by the idea of places and objects that were once long ago worshiped or revered but are now left neglected and cast aside to the forces of nature and time. Whatever the culture or continent to which they belong, these sites evoke a kindred and distinct atmosphere – one that whispers of past veneration and, sometimes, forgotten rituals – but always lonely and haunting.”
