The Waste Stream

The Waste Stream is a series of pinhole photographs created at former industrial sites using site-specific lenses constructed on site with pieces of consumer waste found at each location. This pinhole photography process results in diffraction and blurring of the scene which creates a visual layer for the viewer to consider, and draws attention to the treatment of the land as an expendable commodity. All of the industrial sites I've chosen to photograph are ones that have been repurposed for residential and recreational use by humans. In each of these places, the impacts and effects of the former industry are not apparent on the surface, yet remain pervasive. 

An explanation of each site can be found in the Site Descriptions.
