Half Abandoned | Camilo José Vergara | Via
Physically conjoined by separately sold upon construction, the lives of paired buildings (ones that share a common wall) can diverge dramatically as this photo series poignantly illustrates. In various cases, one half is occupied by squatters, filled with trash, burned out by a fire, boarded up, simply deserted or even entirely demolished.
This approach epitomizes a theme common to his work, which frequently focuses on showing change over time. Like twins separated at birth, these dual buildings (once mirror images of each other) are uniquely illustrative of change. They are found particularly often in Camden, a place with a long history of struggling against decline.

Mark Rothko, Green Over Blue, 1956.
"I’m not an abstractionist. I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on."

if you don’t want to call yourself a feminist because of the historical failure of feminism to be sufficiently intersectional, feminists should be respectful of that while we try to fix our movement. People have every reason to reject feminism on grounds of racism, transmisogyny, ableism and various other problems. The only reason you can get mad about people rejecting feminism is if it is out of ignorance to misogyny embedded in social structures and government.
