I shot this particular series in Pleasantville NY. I live a few miles away and drive
past these electric poles daily, and have been for almost 15 years, which is how long
I have lived in NY for.
Over time I became fascinated by the sheer number of wires and I began to see them
more as graphic art than just the ugly poles that interrupted the stunning landscape and
skyline. Always intrigued by the thought of where they all went and how connected we
are through these wires.
Fourteen years later I decided to shoot 'Wired'. Funnily, the actual shots were taken
on the same day.I picked a dull day so the skies were white and the poles silhouetted nicely.
In post production, the symmetry and graphic nature of the images reminded me of
Piet Mondrian's 'Composition with yellow blue and red'. I have always been a huge
fan of his minimalist work and felt these colors also conveyed a strong sense of
Now when I drive past the poles and wires, they no longer look the same to me.
