Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I made contacts with the Multnomah County Bridge Maintenance crew of Portland, OR, and I was invited to go with them to the top of the Hawthorne Bridge and watch them do the greasing of the bridge’s bearings and the maintenance of the operating mechanisms. I felt privileged to be able to document a story about how a bridge is constantly maintained, and about the men who maintain it.

Materials used:
