An old house with a condemnation notice posted on the front door. SOLD has been spray-painted on the front of the house, and for sale and for rent signs hang in the window. A white plastic patio chair sits on the front steps, which are covered in snow.

Sold - Condemned - For Rent

I photographed this house for the first time on October 22, 2013. Back then, it had a condemnation notice from the City of Fort Wayne nailed to the door frame, and the "SOLD" graffiti painted on the front of the house. A flag hung upside down over the door.

When I made this photograph a few months later, someone had repainted part of the siding on the front of the house, removed the flag, and placed a plastic patio chair on the front steps. Interestingly, since the condemnation notice remained in place, "For Sale" and "For Rent" signs appeared in the windows, and a creepy faded photo of a man and woman covered the window on the left to make it look like someone was inside!

The house is on South Calhoun Street in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
