Mahonri Young - The Ascension of Grit

In 2011, the National Park Service commissioned me to artistically photograph the unrestored interiors of Mahonri Young's
studio located at Connecticut's first national park unit, Weir Farm National Historic Site.  Young was a painter and sculptor
of the Ashcan School and the son-in-law of Julian Alden Weir, the father of American Impressionist painting.  

Young's studio features a high ceiling for accessing his monumental sculptures.  Interesting patterns are formed by the lines of
the catwalks, railings, support posts, stove pipe and paneling.  Small sculptures, cast iron stoves, paint splatters, splashes
of abstract forms created by water damage and other forms punctuate the overall symmetry and brown tones.
