Ben Marcin

House and home have been the focus of Baltimore-based photographer and Squarespace user Ben Marcin‘s work for a number of years now. He captured the image, Morgan County, CO, while on a road trip last summer through both the western Nebraska prairie and the high desert regions of eastern Colorado, in search of ‘solo’ houses. Stumbling upon a tiny wooden frame house on the edge of the Pawnee Natural Grasslands in northeastern Colorado, Marcin records its simple existence, noting that, “while the house and its surrounding environment are decidedly austere, there is also present an almost otherworldly serenity that must have given hope to a landowner now long gone.”
