“Growing up, one of my favorate places was Penny Whistle Park – an indoor amusement park for children, which closed decades ago. In an effort to recall fun-loving, exciting, and colorful memories, I created this work to expose my inner child. By capturing images and manipulating photography from the seemingly impromptu carnivals that pop up in retail parking lots, I recreated the amusement park in new locations, hoping the images invoke carfree memories of childhood fun.”

–John A. Taylor, artist.
