Some of you may know the Southern-based photographer Julia Lynn from her terrific commercial work.
She has shot several of Angie Hranowsky's projects, including the popular Tara Guerard nursery.
But Julia's personal photography is just magical. Recently she shared with me why she is drawn to architectural ruins, such as the circa 1740 St. Helena Island Chapel of Ease, shown at top, as well as other regional sites and faces. I'll be back shortly with details.
BTW: The chapel on St. Helena Island is considered to be an excellent example of tabby construction. Used often in the Beaufort area and surrounding lowcountry beginning in the Colonial era, tabby is concrete mixed with oyster shell, sand, and lime. A forest fire actually destroyed most of this chapel in 1886. Click here for a related Southern Accents Web feature.
