Impressions of Steam

(16 pieces, each 9.5″ x 7.5″, inkjet print on wood)
These photographs provide an impressionistic glimpse of the Pacific North West and its rich history in steam power. I am interested in the textures, colors and the details of machinery which lies decaying in locomotive graveyards of Tillamook and Snoqualmie and at the decommissioned generating station of Georgetown. I like the opportunity to focus on the details and render them into the deconstructed abstract, allowing the viewer to see the curves and forms of the skeletons of forgotten function.
