Entry Title: "Barn windows"
Name: Chris Mitts , United States
Category and Expertise: Historic, Non-Professional


Entry Description: I photographed this historic barn on Sapelo Island off the coast of Georgia. It was beautiful & likely unstable... and so irresistible! It smelled of old wood and hay and just age. The halo effect of light pouring in was magical. As I look at the image, I can still smell it.

About the Artist:

I recall being 4 or 5 years old and wanting to photograph with my parent's camera. I see in framed, stopped images. It's always been like that, from my earliest memory. The urge to record an event or stop a moment has always been there. The need to create is a powerful force in human nature, not to be denied.
