Frankie McAllister photographs urban, suburban and semi-industrial landscapes with a particular interest in the impact of man on nature (and the signs of nature reclaiming the man-made) as well as the seemingly random way scenes, both natural and constructed, often seem ‘arranged’ as visual tableaux. http://www.frankiemcallister.com
