In the summer of 2011 Holly Lynton photographed an old dilapidated New England barn on the property of a former dairy farm in Pioneer Valley. Since then, Lynton has returned every fall and spring season with her large format 8 x 10 inch view camera to record and document the changes to the landscape. Each season bringing further decay to the buildings with an ever-encroaching overgrowth of trees and vines that envelop the structures and appear to stake their claim upon them and subsequently pull them to the ground. The only constant to be found is the return of the Falcons that perch upon the posts of the decrepit buildings.
