Centralia, PA

When I was in Scranton, PA this March for my solo show at New Visions Studio and Gallery, I was able to spend a few hours in Centralia, PA. Me and my friend Melanie Boisseau drove down to see this now ghost town. This once thriving coal town has had a mine fire beneath the land ever since the 60's, which still burns today. It was very surreal to be in this town and see the little left behind. There are still several houses there, some of which are still occupied. I am hoping to make it back there again one day to photograph them.
