My work is a visual photographic exploration, which considers the migration from the field to the factory and the consequences of that shift on the American worker. Since the Industrial Revolution, large corporations have formed that monopolize industries such as farming and manufacturing. These monstrous companies have slowly conquered the American workers' ability to be self-sustaining and to compete in today's economic market. Staging my photographs in a field, I use the worker as a mechanism to contemplate the complex relationship between the individual worker and American industry in contemporary society.
