Fauxliage

Fauxliage documents the prolific disguised cell towers in the American West. I was initially drawn to their peculiar appearance; I then found it disconcerting how technology was clandestinely modifying our environment.

This strange array of palms, evergreens, flagpoles, and crosses has been popping up in recent years. The trees and pillars are not what they appear to be; they are a ruse. I photograph the towers to expose their disguises and highlight the variety of forms. I explore how the towers are creating a newly accepted aesthetic in our neighborhoods.
