  About his Photographs

David Lynch

"I love industry. Pipes. I love fluid and smoke. I love man-made things. I like to see people hard at work, and I like to see sludge and man-made waste"

"Well...if you said to me, 'Okay, we're either going down to Disneyland or we're going to see this abandoned factory,' there would be no choice. I'd be down there at the factory. I don't really know why. It just seems like such a great place to set a story"

"Well, I'm flipped out over industry and factories - sounds as well as images ... The Elephant Man takes place when industrialization was still starting. It was the beginning of Eraserheads times. I was hoping that the Victorians would have had more machinery around. There wasn't a lot, but what they did have made a lot noise and a lot of smoke."
