Photography Theme: Remote Cabin in the Winter

Theme: Remote Cabin in Winter

I shoot book cover images for ArcAngel Images and every winter there is one theme I look for – remote, desolate, old buildings.  The type of places where a mystery or crime could take place.

The scene of some terrible drama that occurs during a howling snowstorm.  A place you don’t want your kidnapper to take you.  A place where no one can hear your screams.

Perhaps a place where the rabbits were butchered.  A sex crime occurred. A strange old hag lives casting her evil spells.

Maybe a place of poverty and shame.  Growing up in the shadows of the coal fields or where Grandpa sharpened his knives and axes.  Perhaps the place where secrets or fugitives are hidden.  Maybe shelter for that escaped convict from the local prison, unknown to the little girl sent out for kindling or to feed the goats.

Of course these old cabins in the woods or covered in a blanket of fresh winter snow don’t have to be the scene of terrible events.  They can be fond memories, sugaring shacks for boiling maple sap down to sweet syrup, they can be workshops, warm and toasty vacation spots or even warming huts for cross country skiers.
