When Timber Design principal Lars Lawson asked Harold Lee Miller to go to Davenport to shoot some branding images for Alter Recycling, he didn’t know he’d fall in love with the place.  Not so much Davenport — it’s a fine town — but this recycling center, with its mountains of scrap metal and beastly machines chewing everything up.  He saw an entire Winnebago picked up by the nose, shaken like a dog killing a snake, and tossed onto a scrap heap.  Like a rag doll.  Very cool.

In addition to images showing the scale of the place, Miller concentrated on taking artful images of the workers and the material they spend their days with.  Here are some of the results.

What’s all this?

MANHATTMAN is hosted by Norman Maslov, whose Agence Internationale, represents a small group of wonderful photographers. This blog showcases images from these artists along with scribes about music, films, food, gin martinis and hats. Pontifications from a native San Franciscan and his extended family and friends. So it goes.
