Who is Recapturist?

My mission with the Recapturist series is to capture, preserve and share the increasingly endangered beauty of vintage signs through photography.  I find myself especially drawn to the Googie-inspired neon signs that many local businesses favored during the mid-1900s.  These once highly conspicuous roadside treasures were easily identified by their bright colors and bold features including large sweeping arrows, pronounced geometric shapes and sometimes even space-themed details.
