My new, abstract, industrial photos taken at Mare Island shipyard, Horizontals: Rusted, are being presented at The Faculty Club on the UC Berkeley campus from January 3 – February 1, 2018. Please call The Faculty Club (510) 540-5678 or check the website (berkeleyfacultyclub.com) for directions and parking information. 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.
