Alex Leme – Small Town

Photographs ©Alex Leme

I was checking the Flickr submissions and Alex Leme’s photographs caught my eye, particularly his Small Town project.  You can view more of his work on his website or Flickr.

Cotton Plant (pop. 960) rests in rural northeast Arkansas, somewhere between Little Rock and Memphis, Tennessee. Despite its rich history and “promising” past and what once was a thriving economic and cultural center of the region, Cotton Plant is now littered with ghost factories, abandoned schools, and the carcasses of crumbling buildings while the handful of the remaining local stores struggle to survive.
