John Fitzpatrick lives and works in Los Angeles.
Photographed in abandoned industial structures in California's Central Valley, the images of "Quiet Apocalypse" capture a paradoxical moment of decay and growth, when human constructions return to nature furthering my interest in making the ugly beautiful, rather than capturing an already appealing image. Vivid colors and deep focus draw the viewer into the spaces, where the rotting subject becomes fragile, and like all human endeavors is subject to inevitable decline and decay. Color enhancement is held to a minimum; rather I strip away distracting colors to focus the scene on my impression rather than reality.
