Mark Raymond Mason [Contemporary Photographer]

"Junk has always has a special appeal for me - I like the way everything man made can so quickly degraded by the element. I like the view of something that has be neglected but is slowly but certainly being re-adopted by nature." -Mark Raymond Mason

Checked Paint, Bolt. 2010
Mason's quote about this picture reminded me a lot of my senior thesis. This picture is of a "No Entry" sign that is rusting away. I like the way that you cannot tell what it is. It makes me think about having some of my works like that, unrecognizable.
