Hard Shoulder – Closing Reception

Hard Shoulder is a series of photographic images that depict now obsolete objects disregarded on the freeways throughout Southern California after they blustered out of the owners vehicle. Each image from the ongoing series isolates one found item, photographed at the high speed of freeway traffic. Hard Shoulder captures neglected detritus that has lost its original function or use. The debris, fragmented, smashed, and splintered as it makes it way to the concrete parapet, has washed up on the shore of the freeway.
