Marquette Interchange Construction Project

These images were taken on April 6th, 2008. There are galleries of 2006 and 2007 images on this page of my website.

The Marquette Interchange Construction Project is an ongoing photographic opportunity. I started photographing around the job site soon after the demolition of the Court House Annex had commenced.

One reason to chronicle this project was the complexity of rebuilding the Marquette Interchange – and photographing the old while being replaced by the new. Another reason is the plethora of detail and abstract opportunities to photograph – from wide-angle views of towering piers and roadway to close up views of materials and workers.

I feel the historical value of these images, are well worth my while to chronicle. Their fine art value will be determined in the years to come. I am compiling a collection of individual pieces and triptychs – photo books and montages will soon be offered.
