Welcome to Buffalo Decay. We are a new website that is dedicated to finding, photographing and recording all of the Decay in and around the Buffalo area. We are hoping that you find Decay as interesting as we do.
In our world all things new, young and unblemished is purported to be the highest form of art. We find it refreshing when art is found in all things decaying. Photographers have known this for a long time. A street littered with garbage can be much more interesting than a street clean and perfect. I thought that it would be interesting to make a website that shows nothing but decay.
What do I mean by decay? Anything that is broken down, busted, blemished in some way or just ugly. I want to make ugly the new pretty. At least on my website. I don’t want to think of the definition of Decay as being something set in stone. It should be fluid. As more an more people seek out Decay maybe they will find things that we never thought of as decay. What do you think of when you think of decay.
Do you drive by some Decay somewhere and say to yourself, “When are they going to fix that eye sore?” Maybe if you stopped and took a picture of it and posted it on BuffaloDecay.com you would feel differently about it. Then the next time that you drive by it you say, “Look at that, isn’t that cool?” I would.
