Memoirs of a Screen

PhotographerCasey Brown
Entry Description

A series documenting the large drive-in theater screens from the Southeast U.S. standing like recent cultural relics. Each screen was host to thousands of screenings over the years, marrying the American public's love of the car and outdoor gatherings. All images are large-format to mirror the size of the original screens. The high- resolution detail is created by the very cameras that forced these celluloid projection screens to become obsolete, revealing both the deterioration of the screens and the exuberant regrowth of previously maintained vegetation.
