Revelation

During the day many spaces occupied by small urban businesses remain obscure.The bright sun, dirty and crowded windows, and old signs create visual barriers that keep these interior spaces hidden from passers-by. Many of these spaces may even seem abandoned or non-functional during the day. It’s at night when interior lights are left on that we can see these are in fact places where people spend their days. These images arise from a series of questions these spaces raise once they are revealed to us: How are these spaces occupied? What is done here? Who occupies these spaces? How do these spaces function as workplaces? How frequently are they used? Do the people here and their businesses thrive? How long have they been here? This series is on-going as I explore the city after dark, looking for the places that the night reveals and what these spaces tell us about the lives of the people who occupy them.
