Shear Strength Cleveland is a photo essay that incorporates Cleveland's past strength through industry that has long been overlooked. David Liam Kyle captures abstract rustic geometric shapes of industry design in his photographs. The mechanical muscle that once was the strength of Cleveland that is slowly turning to rusted steel. Using close-ups, dramatic lighting and different perspectives DLK captures the raw steel strength in artful compositions.

Like Cleveland, the steel girders are not shiny and new but the inner strength and history of Clevelander's is still in our core.
