North Brooklyn Metal

Amorphous Metal, Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Being a photographer one has to be open to whatever comes to them, any opportunity to shoot, and any unexpected chance to show their work. A couple weeks ago my boyfriend told me that our local hardware store had their annual art show coming up. All of the art must somehow involve hardware, so while most of the works were large metal pieces and crazy collages I decided to photograph some local metal shops. Metal shops are amazing places- seemingly so messy and unorganized, yet dangerous work is completed effectively and safely in amongst the chaos. I definitely plan to continue shooting this project.
