Urban : Redux

Composite photographs, archival pigment prints on heavy cold press cotton rag.

Urban Redux is a series of multiple exposures of fragments and layers of visual and textural elements of urban landscapes in the process of transience and decay. The images act as environmental portraits of pieces of landscapes collected "around the corner" – each in specific locations around the Lower East Side of New York City. They are transient because of exposure to weathering, painting over, removal, etc.. The images freeze the disintegrating visual elements, textures, architecture, surfaces, spraypaint, paint, stickers, cement, tar, diamond plate, street grates, etc., and preserves them in one window of vision. The central feature of a personal figure anchors the idea that the layers of texture are initiated by human interaction with an urban environment constantly in flux.
