Abandoned Duck Blinds | Dave Jordano | Via

Along the banks of the Mississippi River on the solid ice, duck hunters set up blinds, a cover device designed to conceal, and at the same time, shelter hunters while they wait for ducks to fly overhead. Duck blinds can be as simple as a natural depression on the ground, but in Midwestern United States, they are often elaborate structures, approaching the size and function of a small cabin with amenities.

In the winter of 2008, when photographer Dave Jordano headed West from Chicago, his home base, to the frozen Mississippi he chanced upon these structures, frail from being exposed to the elements. At first glance, there’s not much to a duck blind – they’re humble, often small structures made of simple materials—wood, paint, nails, netting, and bits of brush or grass. But Dave Jordano could see the beauty in them.
