‘Drain’.  I photographed this image with the idea that the collector may hang vertical, horizontal, or even upside down and still the viewpoint will always be this drain.  I wanted to show that as tiny as it is in scale, it is extremely powerful and essential in construction.

Private Property is a series of provocative photographs that deals with environmental elements and social conscious statements.  My concern for the beauty of our landscape and clean air revolves around ‘not all construction is good construction’.  By looking beyond the surface, we can work towards being mindful and aware of how our behavior not only affects society’s perception of ourselves but also the mis-treatment of our environment.
