With art and photography, there are referents that mark a person’s progression, pushing ahead while yet looking back. So in this case having mentioned Bernd & Hilla Becher, another broader referent for this body of work might be be the Dusseldorf School (Kunstakademie – arts academy where Bernd taught 1976 – 1996).

Unlike those who became well known out of Becher’s program, Hofer, Hutte, Struth, Grursky and Ruff, this body of work was not created with film and a large format camera. Instead I think that the use of digital photography, technology documenting technology, is in line with the investigation of my subject.
