A lecture by the Canadian photographer Richard Martin inspired me to start photographing rusted junk cars. I believe that Ernst Haas was the first to see the possibilities in cars like these. I have also been photographing a large number of unconventional subjects besides junk cars, but that fit in the same category. Harbors are particularly fruitful sources for that sort of thing. I have also found many suitable subjects on and IN the street in my local area.
