In 1998 I became fascinated with the panoramic format. The panoramic image has been part of the photograghic vocabulary for over a hundred years, and tool for many landscape and architectural photographers. I discovered that using a panoramic camera and infrared film could add another dimension to my photographs. These photographs are the relationship between abandon structures and the landscape. We are in an era of transition and old ways are disappearing rapidly. It is often a distrubing vision of our time that is caused by our economy, atmospheric conditions and the impact of mankind. I want to record these structures to evoke an awareness of the past.
