St Louis Windows
Ageing industrial edifices are obscured by the dust and marks accumulated in an abandoned storefront window. The montage of two images, mimics reflections in widows, playing out the disinvestment experienced by many industrial cities through the Mid-West. The dust and graffiti reaffirm the 2-dimensional surface of the prints themselves and the separation between the viewer and the looming building as well as the separation of the photograph from experience.
