This is an ongoing project exploring the vast urban landscapes of the Bay Area in California. I am drawn to these decaying places and structures because of the rich patina of human activity that lies upon them. The massive structures of concrete, glass and steel that inhabit these environments are often ignored as industrial blight; but they serve as witnesses to the historical transformations taking place in our urban environments.
One common thread that runs through this series is my exploration of scale and isolation. In an effort to capture these massive structures and their rich detail, my work probes what we think of as the traditional picture space. Foreground, background and subject have been documented independently as a series of high resolution digital images and then reconstructed. The skies, structures and roads are separate planes. Multiple slices of time are combined to form one image.
