Portraits of St. Louis Artists: Amanda Pfister

Photographer Amanda Pfister finds her subjects in abandoned spaces, the empty husks of what was once human activity. Her images include closed car dealerships; old, empty factories; out-of-business shopping malls and, as above, disused schools. Nobody goes there any more, except her. The pictures are a meditation on transience.

We're driving to Kansas City today. Dinner there tonight with a bunch of the in-laws. On to Hanover, Kansas, (population 653) Saturday morning to see Mrs. C's 91 year old mother (still living at home) and the annual family reunion. I'm hoping to get some good portraits.

Sadly, this photographer has more and more subjects these days.

Great environmental portrait. Like the light and the grain this has.
