Pictures Maps Shadows
Pictures Maps Shadows is a project about the American Rock Salt Hampton Corners Mine in Livingston County, New York. It was a collaboration with architect Alex Terzich, employees of the mine and the local community, and resulted in a small self-published book of photographs and an installation at a pub near the mine site (owned by a former miner). All of the different types of images that make up the book - ones I took, miner’s own photographs, historical materials and found snapshots – create a collection of layered stories about the salt mine.
