I've been working on controlling the degree of abstraction in my photographs. Trying to figure out how much detail can be deleted while still retaining discrete shapes. Trying to push an image freed of representation into something with it's own rules and language.
I photographed this cluster of signs, because I was struck by all the floating rectangles. They seemed to be exactly the same sensibility as the "Truck Paintings." This is how I imagine the image should be.
