Horizontals: Rusted – Jan 3 – Feb 1, 2018

 

 

My new, abstract, industrial photos taken at Mare Island shipyard, Horizontals: Rusted, were presented at The Faculty Club on the UC Berkeley campus from January 3 – February 1, 2018. The Faculty Club is free and open to the public.

I have spent the last year photographing an industrial section of Mare Island shipyard. Rows of huge–3/4″ steel, 31″ diamaeter, 71′ long–rusted tubes first captured my attention. But what kept drawing me back were the details: horizontal bands of color that change with the light, the interplay between the orange rust and the other colors. I don’t know the chemical processes responsible for the colors.
