Reticulation 1 & Reticulation 3 - 2004

Introducing Allison Brooke Kaufman, a photographer with a knack for transforming mundane building details, or other man-made objects, into something a bit more human, lyrical or haunting…and in her "Reticulation" series above, she opens up a universe of beauty and wonder in peeling paint!

Weakened, 2003, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" on 11" x 14", c-print

Here are images of earlier work with buildings…
