The "Texas Fireworks" project is an ongoing body of work that
documents the firework culture through photographs of roadside
stands, their surroundings, and the actual products themselves.
There are fewer stands scattered along the highways than
before, due to annexation of land, firework "Supercenters," and
burn bans. What attracted me most to this subject were all the
different colors, text styling and graphic repetition on older firework
stands. This body of work attempts to capture the beauty
and uniqueness that I see in these stands. My focus is to record
as many of these treasures before they are gone forever.
