Audrey Lahnemann was born in Hartly, DE, and currently lives in Denton, MD. She has always sought creative outlets in things like writing, drawing and photography throughout her life. Her passion for art grew when she was in high school, and it has since become a great focus in her life, as she currently pursues a B.F.A in art - photography at Salisbury University. Audrey is now in her final year at SU and wants to establish a career as a fine art and fashion photographer.
In my photography, I have made it my goal to showcase and preserve what is left of the dwindling memories of these locations before they are erased by time. Most people wouldn’t give their surroundings a second thought. Things inevitably come and go, and such change is simply a part of life itself. The aspects of small-town life that I experienced as a child in Hartly were very significant to me. I spent the first 14 years of my life in Hartly, and I have been living in Maryland since 2016. It is not often that I visit these places from my childhood anymore, but having gradually witnessed these changes and heartbreaking deterioration in my absence makes them all more powerful.
However, I don’t want the idea of deterioration to be the only thing I, or others, remember. Even though these places are left in this state now, the memories will forever remain. The work of Seph Lawless, who documents urban exploration in his portfolio, has always been an inspiration to me. I have been greatly motivated by that kind of photography and wanted to put a twist on it to turn it into a meaningful project for myself.
I invite you to spend time with these photos and connect with each of these locations. I want to create a space to reflect on the ideas of moving forward and finding acceptance in change.
