The signs are lovely and haunting. The glow of the tubes juxtaposed against the worn and weathered paint of the old signs is beautiful and mysterious. There is something about Neon signs that capture the attention and draw your eyes to them. The soft unnatural glow creates an effect similar to a shiny lure mesmerizing a fish.
Avoiding the traditional technique of photographing something as clique as a neon sign, I choose to capture abstract images of the signs features from the tubes to the chipped graphics to the soft ambient light produced by the various colors. The result is this collection of photographs documenting their vivid stillness.
