"If you make it worthless, nobody else will want it"


This is Potter. He's been living in an abandoned chemical storage facility for 10 years, and calls it home. I've been visiting him for a few months now, and am working on a long-term story about his life alone in the Missouri woods. He has no running water or electricity. He collects rainwater around buildings that are slowly rotting from leftover chemicals.I'll try to periodically post some images from my takes. But for now, I'll just put up this one to officially introduce him

A profound beginning-the picture of him tells a thousand words! Can't wait for the full story and pictures-a brave undertaking!

Thanks for the kind remarks. It's going to be a very difficult story to tell, but I'm lucky that he has been very forthcoming in allowing me to document his life so far.
