The Fine Art of Photography 

 “Photographer Jim Westphalen has always had an affinity for the built landscape; those features and patterns reflecting human occupation within the natural surroundings.  His current body of work, entitled Vanish, is an ongoing narrative that speaks to the decay of iconic structures in rural America.  Inspired by such painters as Andrew Wyeth, A. Hale Johnson and Edward Hopper, Jim’s photographs open like windows to a world that is rapidly disappearing before our eyes.  Originally starting this journey in his home state of Vermont, Jim now travels the country “visually preserving” as many of these American treasures as possible before they entirely disappear.”

Photographer:  Jim Westphalen
