As a landscape photographer, I have a fascination for old grain elevators of the American midwest. They seem to occupy their space with such assurance, having settled in over time as a town’s tallest structure, built for the function of storing the harvest. Their magnificent shapes and textured surfaces may show the passage of time in missing shingles and rusted siding, but there is a resilience in their presence that I see as a kind of personality expressed in these “portraits.” I photograph these subjects with a film camera and print them in a traditional darkroom.
