Mare Island former naval shipyard remains an active industrial site for repairing, welding, cleaning, refurbishing, and coating large steel components as well as all sorts of tubes and pipes. When I began photographing out there, I had no intention of continuing for years. But because it’s a worksite, things are moved in and out, interesting things to photograph. Although I started with the “Horizontals” series, I began seeing more photographic opportunities, branching out to “Rust” and, most recently “Holes.” With lots of stuff in between including ospreys who nest nearby which I photograph when I can.
“Horizontals: Rusted” photos can be seen under Exhibits. –Sally Mack
