Empty Convention Center #1

Empty Convention Center - Austin, Texas

Empty Convention Center – Austin, Texas

This is the central entrance to the Austin Convention Center during, usually, the busiest time of the year. Mid-March is when SXSW goes full tilt, and the convention center is the hub of all activities.

Mid-March in 2020 is a whole different story. With SXSW’20 canceled, attendees stayed away, and I documented a rather desolate scene.

There is beauty in stillness, however. Without the clutter of an active life, you appreciate the bones of the infrastructure — the purity of architectural design. Cement columns become sculptures of shadows and light, the metal, a dull mirror.

The careless leaves add melancholy, as you feel in Autumn when the cold approaches. Except, this is Spring in Austin.
