Signs of the Times

Inspired by the work of Cynthia Connolly and her project, Letters on Top of Buildings, I set out to make pictures of the signs that serve as landmarks in and around my home.

These iconic signs, with their distinctive typography, mark the boundaries of the places we live and work. They welcome us, guide us, and often set structure to our dearest memories. I have lived with these signs for my entire life, and they are as much a part of the landscape of my home and my heart as the river or the backyard or the family table.
