(n.) Departures:  the action of leaving, especially to start a journey.  

Color negative film originals with rangebound print editions, a photographic study on the transient buildings of man along the North American Coastal Districts. These structures, acting as a portal to the generations who come through its doors, bending over the course of time, start out as a hopeful story but how that story ends is almost always left unwritten. This is Departures.
