The abandoned Hotel Monte Palace sits on top of an isolated mountain in the Azores. Although its been empty for more than 25 years, the building appears vibrant with colors of moss and rust. The day I captured this image, leftover rain was dripping from the ceiling and the sun was just beginning to peak through the openings of the walls on the second floor.
My work is based on my travels. Every trip I take I endeavor to capture and recreate the impression that a location left on me. My pieces are deeply personal because they are a memory made tangible through photography and paint. I hope that others enjoy my pieces as much as I enjoy experiencing and creating them.
