Shots From Above/Found Paintings


George Haling’s photographs, Discovered Paintings, are unmasked in construction machinery scrap yards, derelict factories, abandoned mining sites and shipyards. Details are isolated and framed out of context. Changing scale, position and perspective forces each subject to loose its recognizable original purpose. Time and space are transformed when an object is pushed from what it once was was to what it clearly wants to be.Haling is interested in transforming the ordinary, by selection and framing, into the extraordinary.

Garret Talbot is an ironworker who likes to take photos sometimes.
