A Window to Roy

While helping to build LuLu's Restaurant in Richmond, Virginia I completed a series of industrial images, many of which are included in this "Tribute to Ayn Rand." Several of the pieces are straight photographs, while others are composite images. In some respects, this art is a sociological study; it captures the "bones" of a city's railroads and its related structures, the enduring -- though decaying -- symbols of what made this country great. The structures associated with railroads seem to have an almost magical effect on people. For some, they hearken back to a time in their youth -- they’re nostalgic reminders of hiking down tracks during summer vacation or of a college job spent painting trestles. They’re a testament to the workers who helped develop this country and they’re lasting symbols of strength and endurance. For me, these structures evoke heroism, idealism and great romance.
