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 installed The first 12’ section of steel border at a customers house last night. Pictured here are 3 - 4’ sections of trusswork that I designed and welded for the project. It really was rewarding to get over there and get the first installation done, this project has been in the works for a long time. I will keep you updated on the project. When it’s done, all of the homeowners sports memorabilia will be displayed and hang from this border. It was a fun night, everything installed just the way I planned, and the homeowners were happy. ... See MoreSee Less
