Based on the concept of, “start with what you know, and start close to home”, I went to my apartment garage.
The ‘Carnage’ shots are an abstract study of the patterns and marks left by the impact of car bumpers, tire marks and exhaust spatter, while the ‘Garages’ series takes a wider view of the vacant, yet purpose-built spaces designed for the automobile.
Although there are no people in the photos, both series represent to me evidence of human activity. Sort of an anthropological study of an ancient race. The ‘Garages’ series also has a forlorn quality about it – these spaces, waiting patiently to be used – with their spare tires and windshield washer fluids at the ready – to be made purposeful. Awaiting the return of their automotive master.
