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…

I just found out that I will be a vendor at the Chicago Art and Design show that will be held at Navy Pier April 8th and 9th. This is a great opportunity and will be in a very fun place. In anticipation of this show, the family and I went down to Chicago and got some materials and took some photos. Here is one of the first. This one will be a frame for sure. Most of you will know that this is part of the marquee of the beautiful Chicago Theater. I will share more of my photos with you, as I edit them.
