Rebecca Skinner


Rebecca Skinner photographs abandoned spaces throughout the United States. She is a modern-day urban explorer seeking unique neglected structures and desolate places. Her subject matter includes images of large open spaces and details such as peeling paint and rust. Texture, color and light play an important part in her image making and she is attracted to the beauty of these places as well as the forgotten history. Time is of the essence as some locations have since been demolished or restored, while others remain frozen in time. Danger is often present, whether it be from rotten floors, hazardous materials, or unexpected inhabitants. She never goes into these places alone and is strongly invested in leaving no trace. Working with tripod and natural light, Skinner does not stage her photographs — there is already a story to be told without making any adjustments.

Skinner studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, RI, and the New England School of Photography, MA. She is currently owner and photographer of Rebecca Skinner Photography. Metrowest Daily and Upworthy are just a few publications that have featured her work. Recently, she has displayed photos at the Boston International Fine Art Show at the Boston Center for the Arts Cyclorama, MA, Art Providence, at ArtSmart Productions, RI and Up Close and Personal at Bromfield Gallery, MA.
