“My hope was to capture and reveal the process of destruction. Although there were lots of people working this job site, I tried to keep faces and other objects out of the frames that would enable the viewer to contextualize the images. In a way, my intention and hope is that the resulting images are void of queues or triggers of place and time. My point was to try and make imagery that felt like it could exist anywhere, I was seeking visual transience. Personally, I believe that urban growth issues are a universal by-product of the human experience and something that we all must wrestle with. Thus, it felt relevant to have a corresponding visual strategy for the series that would help viewers from different places to connect and engage with the imagery.”
