Through the photographer’s lens, so much beauty can be extracted from the most unusual, unexpected, or even long forgotten places. For this show, we ask photographers to turn their lens towards the industrial. One may characterize industrial as large metal structures, both new and aged, twisting and climbing their way into focus, tightly-wound steel cables, factory floors, and the heavy iron of old railroad trusses. Within the notion of the industrial, however, there is an human emotional attachment connected to the laborer and labor movement, as well. We challenge you to take this subject in any direction and focus you may feel fits the theme.
All subject matter and photographic processes are welcome.
