von Stark photography One Second Stories


Sprague, Eastern WA Over 100 years ago Sprague, WA was a booming town and the Lincoln county seat looking toward a bright future. In 2014 it was listed as one of the states 10 most endangered WA historic sites and this year it is on the states endangered historic sites watch list.
I have a passion for the beauty that the past brings to bear on the present and future. My focus in my photography always involves some aspect of history. Lines, shapes, and colors are my initial reaction when I see these historic buildings. The work abstracts and clarifies reality, so it goes beyond documentation.
