Cameron DePue Artist Statment

My work strives to show the beauty that can be found inside of places and things that have been

abandoned and left to rot. The places often regarded as a blight on the surrounding areas can hold inside of them many alluring aspects. I believe finding the beauty within these dismal landscapes is a process that can be used in many aspects of life, and one that can help one reflect more on the positives as opposed to the negatives. The adventure that goes into acquiring these shots is half the appeal for me. Curiosity drives me into these dilapidated structures to see what they have to offer. It is often a glimpse into a place very few will get to explore, and I love to share these experiences with others.
