"In early 1997 I began shooting photos of old abandoned farm equipment and heavy machinery. My attention was drawn to the vibrant colors and fascinating intricacies of shapes and forms. Metals that were once plain and flat had become rich with texture and color over time. Close-ups of inner working parts could be viewed as a whole on a collage of abstract forms or individually with literal meaning and sense.
I prefer to focus on pieces that one would call the whole, drawing attention to the spirited aspects of the composition. I seek to convey the beauty in the ordinary, the newness in what is old and forgotten, the life in what is considered unusable."
