Portsmouth : Collected Saturdays
by Ken D. Ashton and Paul Roth and Kriston Capps

Ashton's photographs show the other side of Appalachia with its fair share of unsuccessful socio-economic undertakings. Through the acute scope of Portsmouth, Ohio, Ashton portrays the macro effect of deindustrialization on small-town America. Ashton investigates the urban landscape, finding signs of depopulation through abandoned lots, homes, and restaurants. He explores how the influence of urban landscape affects our thoughts, actions, and imagination.
