My current project is called Blowout. I collect blown out tires from the highway and photograph them in my studio set against a black background and placed on a column. Though the substance being photographed is rubber and metal, the material is reminiscent of human gesture, body language, and organic matter. The perceptual similarity of an industrial object, such as a tire, with that of human movement, or organic material, sparked my curiosity and initiated this body of work. This is a digital photograph of a blown out tire that I found on the highway in Las Vegas, Nevada in July of 2017.
