These images grow from the architecture around us every day. We can travel far and behold the Taj Mahals of the world. But most of us don't live among monuments. Devoid of economic restraint monuments are but a few exceptions in our architectural collage.
I am fascinated with moments of beauty found in ordinary buildings. Places that become banal once finished offer inspiration during construction, in ruin, and as vignette. What if paint never covered the wood frame? What if copper filled concrete cracks? What if sunlight danced through filigree forever?
Documenting these moments helps me see. I hope these images will inspire others. Perhaps if we more fully cared for materials and processes used to build our world, it would be a better place.
