Ricky Rhodes interviewed by WIRED

WIRED Magazine interviewed Ricky Rhodes to ask about his assignment to photograph the TimkenSteel factories for use in the company’s marketing. The photos capture the imposing presence of their factory (one is the size of 20 football fields) and “…is bathed in a red glow (with) molten steel bubbles in giant cauldrons” along with the intensity of the process which “…turns two million tons of junked cars, old appliances, and other scrap into new steel” and gives the viewer a glimpse into a rarely seen world where “everything … is hot, loud, and dangerous.”
