Shane Fage Photography


    I refer to my photographical styles as abstract industrial and urban decay. I photograph distressed painted or rusted surfaces or various machineries and generate a composition. These areas may be as small as a couple of square centimeters or as large as a square meter. The purpose of this style is to find textured two-dimensional surfaces and turn them in to images that look like oil paintings. For example, I often find paint on a wall that has been degraded by exposure to the elements. Compounded by that, a bill that has been posted by one person then ripped off by another will generate a texture that interests me. In regard to the abstract industrial works, I often find myself in shipping yards, disused structures, auto wreckers, mechanical rooms and manufacturing plants.

    Apart from the occasional black and white, I do not take photographs that look like photographs. Photorealism does not interest me.

    My personal aesthetic is: a photograph of a wall of graffiti is just that. A photograph of a wall of graffiti. A photograph of 3 square centimeters of a wall of graffiti, the side of a garbage can, a section of a burned-out automobile -rendered upside down or sideways- is another thing. This falls in to the "realm of the unintentional" or found object.

    The images on this site are compressed. On some monitors, you may click on (enlarge) the images to get a sense of the detail of the photograph. Of course, this is nowhere near the resolution and sharpness of a real print. The images on this site are 1/10th to 1/500th of the actual resolution.

    I am able to print from 5X7 to 24X36 inches on professional photographical paper. Prices vary by size. I can also have the image framed for you.
