Doc Thissen preserves the past through his photography. Some days, that really suggests crawling on knees and hands for several hours over broken mortar and brick, kicking soot and dirt into air with each movement ahead. He strings cables and lights through to the end of the tunnel, that continues to squinch the further he moves.
At some other point of times, this suggests photographing a wall for several hours, pointing the camera in a space the width of a tiny office to capture a picture the mural in its entirety. He does not know when the thing was painted, or who painted it, but he captures hundreds of frames before he loses the daylight completely. When it comes to photography, the word ‘partial’ could hardly describe Thissen. He told that to become an effective documentary maker, one has to immerse themselves into the project and really understand everything that’s involved or what all took place.
At present, Thissen is documenting old Midwest Refinery. He has spent around 6 hours each day for thirty six days over the course of a year taking pictures of tens of thousands of frames of each little things. In fact, the dashboard in the dust did not escape his lens. Doc spent much time researching the whole property.
Thissen told that it takes time. Time and dedication and the willingness to talk to a lot of people. He is doing as much as he could right now tracking down anything on the U.S. Yttrium side.
