I’ve been looking down a lot lately.
The roads, parking lots, sidewalks and curbs, gritty and utilitarian as they are, can be surprisingly beautiful and expressive. A streak of road tar or a splash of paint or maybe a combination of that and the edge of a curb has been capturing my eye. I have been compulsively searching for compositions that seem to be cropping up everywhere I walk or drive. Camera in hand I have been moving from squiggle to mark, almost a danger to myself, as I dodge traffic at times to get that next frame. It’s an on going thing and the current result has been a book of some of the images called “Road Works” and hopefully a show in the near future.
