Statement from my installation for City of Night
I’m attracted to Silo City because I believe it encapsulates the energy of the new era that is beginning to dawn on Buffalo. We aren’t chasing a lost dream anymore; we’ve decided to take control of our destiny to paint a new picture of our city by repurposing our historic space for the 21st century while still honoring the spirit that made our infrastructure possible.
This series of photographs features local dancer, Nancy Hughes, posing in the grain elevators behind these very walls. My intent was to create images that capture our industrial roots infused with a new creative energy that is making the rebirth of our region possible. No longer will we think abandonment and defeat when we come across these spaces.
Instead, we will see opportunity.
