Junk or History by David Emitt Adams

Junk or History by David Emitt Adams

David Emitt Adams, photographer from Arizona, creates fascinating art on rusty old cans he found in the local desert. The artist decided to give some importance to the meaningless junk, that was dumped more than 40 years ago when the American desert was more empty and less touched by buildings.

Adams’ project “Conversation with History” was created with the labor-intensive 19th century photographic process known as wet-plate collodion, the result of his work was “an object that has history as an artifact and an image that ties it to its location. These cans are the relics of the advancement of our culture, and become sculptural support to what they have witnessed”.
