Modern Catacombs

 Photography inspired by the replacement of modern technology.

When I was younger, I always wondered what it would have been like to live in an age, like the Industrial Age, when technology moved so quickly it really changed life.  Who would have known that I would have the opportunity to experience these kinds of changes for myself?  With kindles, Google maps, smart phones, digital cameras and computers, we no longer have to lug around heavy books, A-Zs, paper maps, typewriters, letters, film, and the list goes on and on.  Although, I must admit, as much as I am in love with all of this new technology, I do not ever want to go back to the days of typewriters; although, I do have some mourning to do over the slowness of life that is forever gone.  Letters out –of-the-blue from friends on a rainy Tuesday in the post, telegrams of friends at weddings who could not attend because they were abroad, the quietness of life when you could really think and be alone because we were not all connected all the time.  I call this book Modern Catacombs because I made this book to preserve the rose tinted memories of slower times.
