Help us un-forget the forgotten! We travel to rusty, dusty, derelict places so the abandoned can become beautiful once again.
Crawling inside a room coated in grime, cobwebs and perhaps a little animal excrement won’t stop our curiosity. There’s nothing like the rush you get the second you know it’s just you in there…or at least the squatters are keeping quiet! Suddenly you realize several hours have passed and you have only scratched the surface.

The blasts of colored light you see inside these buildings, cars and enclosed spaces are not Photoshopped. We physically paint with color and light using colored flashes and strobe lights, with the full moon as an external light source.Read on to learn more
about how we create these unique images.
In 2012, we took four separate trips along Route 66 to promote our book Polaroid Photos from Route 66
. We visited museums, diners & motels along the way; a grassroots book tour, so to speak! Check out the posts we wrote during our journeys
as we met new friends, photographed old haunts and rekindled our love for the road.
We have fun stuff for sale in the Fading Nostalgia Shop. From large gallery pieces to add that unique pop your living room needs, to mini magnets to cover your refrigerator in kitsch. Head over right now to get your shop on!
Polaroids Photos from Route 66, Our First Book!
In December of 2011, we self-published our first book, Polaroid Photos from Route 66
. It was such a quick and exciting process, and we are ecstatic over how it turned out! The book contains about 275 Polaroid photos and a couple dozen of Chris’s personal stories about his experiences traveling the Mother Road. We took the book on a grassroots book tour and traveled Route 66 four separate times this Spring/Summer/Fall of 2012, to talk to fellow 66 fans and friends about the book, as well as the future of the road. We had such a blast visiting everyone in person! Check out the book’s page
for more details and to order the book. A special thanks goes out to all of our friends and family who have been such an incredible support through this entire process!
