About Lance Thomas Industrial Artwork

My goal is to showcase the heart of each city I photograph with industrial materials, architectural imagery and creativity.

I walk the street with my camera and spend time in the alleys and the dark corners. Afterward, I choose and highlight the images that add character and depth to the city, building one-of-a-kind frames using mostly reclaimed or salvaged materials.

I started this process in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2012 and have since brought this philosophy to my home town of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I plan to expand to other cities in the future as well as add to existing city collections.

Capturing buildings, breweries, doors, windows, signs and all the little things that make a city unique…
