In Daniel Shea’s series Bilsner, the artist uses an abstract narrative to depict Bilsner, IL–a fictional rust belt town–during the process of deindustrialization. In Untitled (Overhead) a hard–hatted construction worker stands still, holding a cement form over his head as he casts a long shadow in the room. His bizarre stance and static pose is at odds with the worker’s strength, creating a strange moment of dissonance. Shea has exhibited his work widely, including exhibitions at Foam Fotografiemuseum; Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; and Vava Gallery, Milan. He holds an MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
