Metra Power Station Print

Buildout Sequence

The first 10 frames are a sample of the 96 exposures I took over a 6 hour cycle. The print takes shape as these exposures are combined, layered and masked - infusing the final image with a surreal mix of elements - selectively compressed time. In the foreground, the warm, light streaked roads get their hue from the white headlights and red taillights of moving cars. The play of natural and man made light lets us see into open doors and windows. I manipulate this balance, revealing patterns normally invisible.
