About the art in this issue:

Craig Damlo is an innovation expert specializing in creating a culture of innovation and design thinking. With a background in aerospace product and innovation development, Craig helps companies understand how to best utilize their resources in order to maximize innovation within their own groups. Craig has always been interested in how things work and problem solving, constantly taking things apart as a child, and this desire drove him to use photography as a way to capture what he was observing around him. He uses his knowledge of physics to tell a photographic story of how time and movement affect image capture and how the passing of time—as well as the human hand—works to reclaim objects, as showcased in this collection. Craig also uses photography to hone his innovation skills through careful, patient observation and the capture of still moments to observe just how things operate.
