From the introduction:
These photographs are, in the modernist sense, found objects. They explore the silence inherent to modern urban space, and they reproduce in the viewer the perceptual disorientation evoked by much of modern life. They abstract time and space while systematically deconstructing the urban environment. They exist as examples of how we as individuals choose to view the world around ourselves, or instead how we might choose to block from our perception, the surface of the world.
