Garage Doors

The diversity in design and manufacture of garage doors astounds me. The design, construction and materials employed is extensive. Some garage doors are cherished and well maintained, others are neglected and forlorn. There are those that have been constructed from dubious DIY designs with inappropriate materials; have seen better days and outlived their original purpose and are now sad and dilapidated.  My objective with this body of work is to provide a representation of this miscellany of garage doors inRead more
