About this very cool image, Aggregate Pit, 2022, she says: This image was taken from 135’ above the pit with a 120mm lens and is an example of how an interesting photograph can be found in the most unexpected places. I was attracted by the pronounced pattern, movement and coloration created in the aggregates by a backhoe loader moving in, out and around the pit. When material is transported from one side to another and laid down, dumping the aggregates creates a precise, interesting pattern.
