About Corrosion & Desolation:
Corrosion & Desolation is a two-part show, with black and white photography of the American Southwest and color images of the unintentionally artistic surfaces of old railroad freight cars.

In the black and white series, Greg explores the largely solitary nature of the desert. The desert's unrelenting forces are apparent in the time-worn building and sign surfaces as well as the local flora and geology. In many of the studies, medium format plastic cameras are used, their distorted optics enforcing the feeling of nostalgia and age particular to the subjects.

The color series, Railroad Paint, is an ongoing project to photograph the varied metal surfaces of old freight cars. Greg finds himself drawn to the way various typography and oxidized colors play off of the metal surfaces, preferring to include only partial details in his photos. Each image is a study of the effects that human touch and the elements have on the surface. The photographs explore both the way that paint and corrosion mix and the unintentionally artistic layering and application of typography.

The show draws from Railroad Paint, Desert Ramble and Blister Bomb, click for Greg Myhra's Fine Art Section

All of Greg Myhra's photographs are archival pigment prints, which have the ability to hold more detail and nuance than many traditional darkroom processes. Like darkroom prints, with proper handling, pigment prints are as archival. Greg's images are printed with the highest quality archival pigment inks on a variety of fine art paper stocks. Prints are available as limited editions, which are titled, numbered and signed by the artist.
