21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
Rural Decay

In the rural mountains of Georgia, the bright white of a toilet stands out against the black background of the vacant window, providing a framing within the frame of the photo itself. Viewers are left wondering how did this get here? How ling has this been in this state of decay. Like so much of rural America, the decay did not happen overnight, but has been ignored for years.
