Why is rust photography so interesting to me? Well, I grew up with a mill and creek literally in my back yard and a father who was an engineer with an amazing workshop and garage. My dad could whip up just about anything and I was never the girl who played with dolls or dressed up. No, I was always dirty and you could either find me in the garage under the car handing my dad his tools, or on my bike in a neighborhood that was home to many mill workers. I would often see giant pieces of metal going in and out of the mill or sitting around in the lots nearby. As a kid who loved to explore, I found myself in places where kids probably shouldn’t be, back then rules weren’t what they are today. The mill is a leading producer of forged and cast rolls for the worldwide steel and metal industries, so you can see why I may have a bit of interest in rust photography Pittsburgh Art!
