Jamie Betts: Left Behind
January 28 - April 16, 2017
Jamie Betts is a Fine Art, Commercial and Editorial photographer based in Richmond, Virginia. For the past ten years, Betts has documented abandoned places found across Virginia and beyond. Like stepping into a time capsule, these photographs tell the stories of their past inhabitants. Peeling wallpaper, crumbling brickwork and personal artifacts reveal traces of human presence and the inevitable effect of time. Derelict hospitals, farmhouses, barns, churches and other forgotten places appear to decay and crack before our eyes. Nature slowly begins to invade them as moss, stalactites and vegetation take hold.
