Americana Thomas Broadfoot III vol 1 Art BySilent Studio Americana When Wally and I go out to photograph together we tend to pick a direction then catch what we run across in our lens. We have run into country stores in Mansfield, Arthur, Homer, Tuscola and other rural locations around IL as well other towns and small cities throughout the Midwest. The nice thing about it is that we can walk into these stores and ask if it's okay to photograph their interiors. We have captured old-fashioned general stores, pottery stores, bike shops, a car museum, a motorcycle dealership just to name a few of the establishments we've been able to capture while we wander around photographing landscapes and small towns that are slowly disappearing. Wally and I have found some of these remnants of a bygone era alive and well while being the center of the community. vol1 To See all the images in this collection go here https://bysilent.co.business/ Americana vol1 "I went to West Texas and started writing a cycle of Americana poems after the space conjured images that, as a child, I only saw on television-John Wayne, cowboys, borderlines. But suddenly, I felt close to these once- foreign imageries and wondered how I'd changed. Each evening brought the darkest skies in the country, and I understood the expansiveness of our inner selves. Ultimately nothing divides us except the worlds and words we allow." - Nathalie Handal https://bysilent.co.business/ Americana We still after years of traveling together to photograph take great delight in the serendipity of our discoveries. We drive into small towns which always seems to be the same types of buildings that are endemic to small-town America. There always seems to be a Masonic Temple or the Odd Fellows or other fraternal organizations. We have seen Carnegie libraries in towns where the library is basically the only structure of substance still standing and we've gone into other small towns with her entire Main Street has buildings from the 1890s, 1920s and all the buildings are in good condition. Many of the buildings of the 19th and early 20th century have been repurposed many of them were banks or post offices but they're still standing and thriving. The architecture is great to capture because we have seen too many of these buildings disappear while we have been photographing. vol1 https://bysilent.co.business/ Americana vol1 https://bysilent.co.business/ Americana vol1 The fun part about going out and finding these out-of-the-way places is a unique each place is based upon the owner. Each owner that we ran across was jovial loved people and really was interested in why photographers coming to their small town. They got very interested when we explain the we were documenting small towns that are in general tricking out of existence. And to a person they shipped ahead understanding exactly what we were talking about, it was always interesting to see how they were surviving while other towns were dying rather rapidly. While in I went into town and I will not mention the name where half the town buildings were burned out while other buildings were empty. https://bysilent.co.business/ Americana Wally and I have traveled almost the entire state of Illinois from border to border, Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana, Iowa, Arkansas and Tennessee photographing our travels. Many times, we will come across a diverse group of photographs from landscape, architecture, animals and we always are amazed at what we've captured with our cameras. It is fun to go photograph with someone who enjoys an unstructured exploration of everything around you. There are times when we will be driving and one of us will spot something we will turn the car around and go back to check that thing out whatever it might be, there are times we pulled into a driveway and knocked on a Farmer's door and ask to take photographs of their outbuildings. In the automotive collection there's an old car that was found in a barn, the farmer said sure go ahead but I have no idea why but go right ahead.

"It is true that the American colonials have "free elections," in which they have the absolute right to vote for one of two opposing candidates, both of whom have been handpicked and financed by the Rockefeller syndicate. This touching evidence of "democracy" serves to convince most Americana that we are indeed a free people. We even have a cracked Liberty Bell in Philadelphia to prove it."
