Kathleen Thomas

Old School: The Alchemy of Ruins 

When: Nov. 14-Dec. 6 2015
Savannah photographer Kathleen Thomas presents a documentary photography exhibition featuring an abandoned schoolhouse in Bulloch County Georgia built in 1935 and its transformation over a period of two years. The school was discovered serendipitously by friends of the photographer when they needed building materials for their new house. Over time, the old Denmark Community School was slowly dismantled brick by brick. Walls, ceiling beams, flooring and the tin roof were all transported to the new home site. These images reveal both human alteration and the relentless encroachment of the forces of nature on a structure in the rural Southern landscape throughout the changing seasons. All the images included in this body of work were created using a traditional 35mm camera and film. Each photograph is framed using moulding of various age and condition. Now through December 6.
