Throughout his career, he has covered a variety of different photojournalistic projects with a keen, and artistic eye. From Salvage of Flight, a series of photographs documenting the salvaging of the US Air flight that airline captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger managed to safely emergency¬ land in the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, to most notably, Next Stop the Atlantic, wherein he photographed the use of deaccessioned subway cars being repurposed as coral reefs, Mallon has pushed the boundaries of documentary photograph both in subject, composition and execution.
In Patterns of Interest, the works are further re-contextualized; intentionally taken out of their respective, larger bodies of work, in order to subvert context and allow the viewer to concentrate and meditate on the individual compositions expressed and the patterns illustrated in the plastic, concrete and steel.
