Portfolio > Urban Identities

The moving rippled scales of the Merrimack River, like the city of Lowell itself, inspire hypnotic dreams made up of flowing fears and desires that thread their secret discourses within the atmosphere of the mind manifesting in a landscape of age-old human hopes, industrial traditions, and habitual economic disparity.

My photographs embody an agenda of surfaces where the detritus of a vanished age exists amongst the struggles of post-industrial re-purposing and re-invention.

I am interested in the inner and outer skins of red brick factory walls that silently wash over the centuries and renew a dialogue with the ever-changing surfaces of Lowell, Massachusetts's shifting urban identities.

I am fascinated by the overlaying connections that exist between the present day city of Lowell and the influence of the past products and machinery of centuries of modernity’s industrial urbanization and post-industrial collapse.
