About Lynnda Pardoe

Chicago, IL

My artistic practice is informed by the New Topography movement which sought to document the environmental results of industrial production. The enclosed pieces explore the consequences of unchecked corporate malfeasance combined with bureaucratic ineptitude.

I strive to engage viewers initially through the stark visual qualities of the sites photographed, creating an inner dialogue hopefully full of questions. My work has taken me to abandoned steel mills in Cleveland, shoe factories in Providence and former battery manufacturing complexes in rural Ohio.

My most recent project, visually documents the environs of Detroit, a city sadly overrun with subject matter. From gleaming cars to a city left with the results of the collapse of the auto industry, I hope that my work will be a call to action for its viewers.
