    In this episode of Capturing the Abandoned, Lex and I had the honor and  pleasure of interviewing Mr. Brian Fuller (@bfullerfoto) who calls Las Vegas, Nevada his home, when he’s home. He has provided us with many wonderful Stories from small town USA from across the country and has offered us quite a different twist on our shadiest place question.

    Mr. Fuller has several projects in the works, including plans to open a gallery in Nevada called the Storytellers Gallery and he currently has a crowdsourced art book in the works.  There will be a link to this project in the show notes.

    In our visit with Brian, We were happy to learn a couple of new words which includes - Poetography which is what he is a process Brian is currently doing with many of his images, and storyokie which will be making its debut very soon.

    We ask Brian our usual questions along with a few others, plus do you have a few people to mention for a shout out?  Of course he couldn’t list them all - @elizabeththorp,  @michaelmazephotography @derekace85 @sierra_winds @jill_koop

    EP-17 Capturing the Abandoned With Vivian MacKenzie

    EP-17 Capturing the Abandoned With Vivian MacKenzie

    What a Treat! In this episode of Capturing the Abandoned, Lex and Vincent had the honor and pleasure to interview Miss Vivian MacKenzie from Russell, Manitoba Canada. @vivian_lee_mackenzie

    Vivian grew up on the Manitoba Prairies where she has always had an appreciation for the backroads and open fields because that is where you could find her playing. She finds repurposing old things always comes  naturally to her, whether it was something found or something she bought at a thrift store.

    As stated in her bio, Vivian’s photography is as much about her as an artist, mother, friend and human being as it is about her telling a story about the forgotten, lost, and abandoned. She continues to find herself over and over, as she travels the backroads, never knowing what she will find, but always knowing there is a story to tell.

    We ask Miss Vivian our usual questions along with a few others.
