The Sunday edition of the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram included an article and interview by Andrew Dowd, featuring one of my recent photo series that is also currently displayed at the Chippewa Valley Museum. The article was very well written and really does an amazing job connecting words to my imagery of Eau Claire. I included the first part of his writing below but please visit the Leader Telegram’s website for the complete article and photos.
“Neon and fluorescent lights shimmer in the twilight of a stormy spring evening along a former highway that runs through Eau Claire. The reds, whites, yellows and blues from the glowing store signs reflect off the rain-slicked black mirror of asphalt below. A motel, fast food restaurant, car loan business and strip malls along Hastings Way gain a certain glamor in this light, elevating the sight from a commuter route into a scene reminiscent of a Hollywood movie or picture postcard.” ~ Andrew Dowd of the Leader-Telegram
If you’re interested in seeing any of the series mentioned in the Leader-Telegram article I will post them below.
