Description This very dramatic slender brick smokestack is part of the MIT Research Reactor in Cambridge, MA. It acts as a landmark within an urban neighborhood as it stands alone in the wide open space. Massachusetts Ave. runs right by as it leads into Boston. The ascending shape tapers gracefully as it reaches high into the sky. In detail, a line of ladder rungs are embedded into the brickwork, beckoning who would be brace enough to climb such an precariously enormous height.
Brian Rojo, Arlington, MA. Member Since March 2011 Artist Statement I'm a landscape architect with a curious eye for finding beauty and meaning in unexpected places. My portfolio contains many subjects, with an emphasis on landscape and architectural photography. I worked as a landscape architect for many years until I became disabled with a genetic disorder. As a result, I'm using photography as a means of expression, replacing the artistic sensibilities that I once found in my profession of designing landscapes and gardens. My aim is to seek out strong compositions and unique viewpoints of familiar and unfamiliar subjects. My interests range from rural to urban landscape, from modern to historic architecture, from plants to vernacular objects, from a sense of place to a sense of wonder. Ultimately, I hope to encourage others to find the beauty in their environment, and to be curious of the unfamiliar.
