Shot during the Valley Junkyard Night Photography Workshop in September, the camera was positioned between rows of exhaust manifolds that almost look like a post-apocalyptic vineyard. Except these vines are growing rusty old metal instead of grapes. Absorb the moonlight and taste the terroir in the interactive version of the panorama.
There was an owl in my yard, and I have this little dog that’s like seven pounds, and then there’s this huge owl out there I’ve never seen before [with my dog]. The next morning I woke up and was reading an article that had that phrase in it – “Everything is on the internet” – and I thought, “You know, that owl isn’t on the internet.” We’re taught to believe that they are putting more and more things in our cars, in our phones, our computers, and that they are doing us the favor of separating the wheat from the chaff, but really the chaff is online, and the real shit is out here for us to partake in without anybody fucking with us.
