Glimpses of the Past
When I wander this land that we call Earth, I feel a magnetic attraction to things from before the time of my birth. It’s with spiritual reverence that I interrupt my travels to visit the places of these artifacts. While there, I imagine the folks who toiled and thrived to make these places worth remembering.
I make my photographs with the same reverence that causes me to detour from my journeys. It’s patience and love at every step of the photographic process; capture, development, post-processing, printing and presentation, which allow me to share the beauty of these places.
It is my pleasure to share “Glimpses of the Past” with you.

He has since expanded his experience through workshops across the United States. Among his contemporary advisors are Tillman Crane and Russell Young.
The subjects of Darrell’s photos tend to lean toward abandoned structures and out-of-the-way spots, which remind one of day’s gone by. He uses an assortment of cameras to capture his photographs including digital and pinhole.
Darrell’s photographs have been exhibited at Carnegie Visual Arts Center in Decatur, Alabama; Photo Place Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont; and The Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, Massachusetts. Darrell’s images are also included in personal collections throughout The United States.
