Postcards from the South

Screen Shot 2013-06-01 at 5.16.02 PM

Way back in 2009 I was visiting family and friends in the US and I started a series of black and white photographs called Southern Comfort.  The photos were mostly rural old barns and farm houses that represented an image of the south which I believe is disappearing.  As a personal project this has been something that I have really enjoyed looking at and making so on my most recent visit to North Carolina I started a new version of Southern Comfort called Postcards from the South. In this group of photos I tried to have a selection that represents not only the rural areas but also the urban areas and a few things in between.

I would love to hear in feedback you have, enjoy!

New gallery coming soon!

New gallery coming soon!

In the next few days I hope to be posting a new gallery of photos on my website, edwintoonephotography.com. Once it is up and live I will make sure to inform you all via this blog. I look forward to your comments and suggestions.


About 8 or 9 years ago I did a series of photographs of old houses and barns from the south, mostly from North Carolina.  It was called Southern Comfort. Living in Barcelona allows me to really photograph some great new and old architecture but I still have a love for the back roads of the south.

On my current visit to the US I am trying to expand on Southern Comfort to include some abandoned treasures and few buildings from small towns.  After taking the picture of Harrell’s yesterday I realized that these small town streets are also a very important part of the old south and must be included.  Image
