Photography’s ability to capture the nuanced details found within ‘Road Paint’ explores the graphic and almost inadvertent abstract expression found in modern road systems. These symbols placed by various road crews, public works departments, cable, telephone, gas companies, and water departments offer colorful and graphic abstract expressions that most people are barely aware of. As people travel by car, foot or bicycle, these symbols are obscured by the commonplace and go practically unnoticed. Once viewers see the graphic, bold and colorful images of ‘Road Paint,’ it offers a fresh insight into people’s own experience to recognize and appreciate the subtle language of paint on roads in a new and enjoyable way.

I have been shooting still photographs for over 40 years. As both a fine art photographer and as an editorial and corporate photographer my work has appeared in newspapers, magazines, annual reports and various forms of electronic media. I am passionate about using photography to document people, places and objects with the ability to capture the world in such incredible detail and to make photographs that have the capacity to impact people and see the world in new ways.
