I think what fascinates me the most is the object itself and not necessarily its function especially when it’s in front of my lens. These objects become metaphors—a block of ice becomes a mountain, a light bulb transposes from something concrete into something abstract, a discarded aluminum scrap becomes a gestural expression for the object’s elegant flow. This is what gives these objects a new sense of purpose for me. – William Castellana William Castellana is an award-winning photographer whose images have been published internationally in periodicals such as Silvershotz (The International Journal of Contemporary Photography), Rangefinder, Creative Quarterly (The Journal of Art & Design), Newsweek, Time, New York, and others.
