From Freddy Martinez’s interview with Marc Yankus for PhotoWhoa:

FM: All the images in this series have been digitally edited: you’ve erased buildings, added textures, or soften your backgrounds. I read that you don’t like talking about the exact process to your work, but could you give us a general approximation of your editing process? For example, in this one, what compelled you to add the sandy texture?

MY: Actually, not all the images have been digitally edited but a large number have been. Sometimes I use this sandy texture to isolate a building. With everything in the background faded, the structure that I want to emphasize is brought into focus. But I will often keep parts of the background in the image but fade them for the same reasons. Because of that, my work lies between documentation and fiction.
