INDUSTRIAL GRACE (2018)

In this series of images I examine the form and details of machines that were built during the Industrial Revolution. These machines are on display at the Charles River Museum of Innovation in Waltham, Massachusetts, and at the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum in Boston.

I was initially drawn to these industrial tools because of their historical significance but as I spent quiet afternoons studying them I came to appreciate their dignified beauty. Beneath the rust and oil these cold utilitarian machines have color and grace.
