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…
FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHY AND PROJECTS:
In this section I want to showcase some of my current photography and projects. As I build content on the website, some of the new works can get lost in the shuffle. Here are some of the things I am working on now.
This is a shot of a set of steps that lead from a small town VFW down to a defunct boat dock. I believe they were built as a memorial to WWI vets from the town. They are in disrepair and I never see anyone down there, but it is one of my favorite places. I feel a reverence when I’m there, and a true connection to the past and the sacrifice of many.
This is a shot of a set of water standpipes on a building in Indianapolis. I was drawn to this fixture immediately. I think it is neat how they each rise in size. There is something neat about a fixture that waits patently thought time to do it’s job. Hopefully they are never needed!
