Along the Edge
For 120 years the steel industry dominated a landscape where marshes, prairies and wooded terrain had thrived; an ecosystem that has reemerged after the last shuttered mill, to circle back as an example of urban ecological survival. “Along the Edge” documents nature’s return within the city limits of abandoned industry, rail yards, neighborhoods and Indiana’s border on the southeast side of Chicago.
"I’ve been photographing since the late 70s: people on streets, solitary places and arbitrary things. A roll of film and the willingness to continue have resulted in exhibits throughout Chicago, with portfolios in the Museum of Contemporary Photography (1995-2004) and works displayed at Photokina World’s Fair for Imaging."
