These grain elevators in Slater, Missouri (2005), are the sort of "inbetweens" -- meaning between the era of the old tin clad elevators and the concrete ones of the modern era. The new metal elevators, like those in Author, ND 2007, are becoming the structure of choice for smaller operations. One of the things that draws me to these structures is the repetitive forms and shapes, the neatness of the sameness so to speak, and then layer on top of that the time worn looks of heavy use. These pictures are like single image sequences that record in their worn exteriors the passage of time.
