Ryan Boatright–Piles 2010-2012


This project visually characterizes piles of stuff found along the outskirts of the French suburbs and in the immediate countryside. I was very much interested in the piles’ variable and often ambiguous contents; some contain materials that will be used for urban expansion while others function as organized trash, comprising structures fallen down. Some piles are used for agriculture. Many are overgrown, resembling small hills. The formal code of the images, with repetitive horizons and stretched skies, attempts to mirror their visual strength and rhythm in the natural landscape.
