Abandoned, weatherbeaten, and nearly forgotten, St. John's Baptist Church of Stotesbury, West Virginia, in this black & white photograph seen from the old mining road above, stands shrouded by trees and overgrowth.


Photograph Title: Silenced
Print Size: 9x12 with a .4-.75" white border
(Since I can only list with one shipping price, 9x12 orders will be refunded the $1.50 shipping overcharge)
11x14 with a 1.6-2" white border
Please ask about additional sizes
Photograph Orientation: Vertical
Photograph Taken In: Stotesbury, West Virginia, USA


The little wooden clapboard church had been built in 1918 to serve as the blacks-only church in Stotesbury, a mining company town. This was during the time when such things still happened; it's rather shocking to consider.

In the 1980s, St. John's congregation moved from the woodsy valley and into the city; they left their simple but pretty old church to the mercy of creation and Creator. Natives and preservationists hoped the building would be rescued, but unfortunately, the abandoned church collapsed just months after I visited and took this photograph. St. John's suffered her final indignity when the remains of the old church—including the still-standing steeple—were bulldozed and taken away.

One of the reasons I'm a photographer is to capture and preserve our history as art; I'm glad I was able to reach St. John's before its demise, so we may remember our past.

• The limited-edition documentary photo you receive will not be watermarked.

• I personally sign & number the back of each art photograph. After 776 prints are made, the edition is closed and the photograph will no longer be available for sale.

• My photographs are professionally printed at the highest resolution on archival photo paper with a matte finish to be smudge, fade, and water resistant.

• Very few of my art photographs are a standard print or frame size; thus each print has a slender white border surrounding the photograph itself. This border not only allows you to buy a frame 'off the rack', but serves to lend a bit of additional protection to the actual photograph itself from any serious damage.

• A signed Certificate of Authenticity is included with each photo print.

• Signed photographs are carefully wrapped in acid-free tissue, sandwiched between pieces of foam core, and mailed First Class. Once I have a tracking number, it will be sent to you.

• My monitor is professionally calibrated for colour; therefore, the tones seen in your received print may be slightly different from what you see displayed online.

As few of my finished photographs are standard frame size, each of my photographic prints has a white border all the way around the image. This not only means you can buy a frame 'off the rack' if you do not want a custom frame, but the white border does protect the image itself from errant fingerprints or other unintentional damage.
Since these photographs are my own interpretation of the sights as seen by me, I am sorry, but I generally will not make a colour photo black & white or vice-versa. Occasionally during post-production I'll be unable to decide which I like better and publish both, but while it does happen, it's not often, and the image I do release is not arbitrary, but the one I think best suits the subject and composition. Thanks for understanding this.
