When I was in the rust belt shooting urban decay and the fall of American Industry, I worked on a series of telephones. All the different types of phones stamped a date on the closing of these plants. Each one was unique and told a story. This one was in one of the last buildings we  shot in Chicago. The Chicago Steel and Wire company. To see some images that my brother Josh took of the same facility, check out
