Thomas’s exhibition is “Decay of the Domestic.” The abandoned homes portrayed in these photographs are not the result of a large-scale natural or man-made disaster. These homes are scattered throughout the small towns and rural areas of several Midwest states. They have remained after their inhabitants left.
