Industrial Landscapes

Hand Colored Gelatin Silver Prints

My husband would tell stories of growing up in Pittsburgh surrounded by incredible skies and sunsets caused by industrial pollution. According to Kevin, the colors were unreal and unsettling. As a result, when I recorded the city's postindustrial landscape I was haunted by the skies of the past. By hand coloring these black and white images, I can illustrate my interpretation of the past and connect it to the present. The color represents the intensity of the past, the black and white image represents the poignancy of the present and the combined image pays homage to an industrial era.
