Street in the city blocked with many construction signs. Black and white.
Historical Context:
"Many people say that Michigan only has two seasons, winter and construction season. The thing about construction season in Michigan is that where ever there is supposed to be construction, there is only desolation. I have always felt that to find desolation in a place where there is supposed to be a rebirth of sorts, an oddity. I find that construction itself has so many interesting shapes and structures, that it helps make for incredible photographs. Therefore, the orange barrel project is an effort to capture the reality that road construction is a unique thing here in the state of Michigan." -Nicholas Rutkowske
