Ernie Button’s portfolio, “Back and Forth” has been published in the online magazine, F-Stop Magazine.
According to Button, “Changes in society aren’t always obvious. Sometimes they can be very subtle. The grocery store rides that many of us enjoyed as children are slowly disappearing from the urban landscape. That mechanical horse or the spaceship ride made a trip to the grocery store bearable as a child but now seems hard to find.” Five years ago, Button began his project of photographing these rides in black and white. He has returned to the same locations and shot roughly the same frame in color – perhaps at a different time of day or slightly different perspective – all to suggest change and the passing of time.
