This series comes from a place created by nostalgia for a time when the natural world, unaltered by humans on any large scale, was the dominant view. It is a location that arises from a need to deal with the power and beauty that remains in the portions of nature not yet demolished for the sake of commerce. It contains a fascination with things that happen very slowly. And a wish for what I point my camera at to be the only thing there is to see. I want to know what happens when the destruction of ambiguous states is reversed. These images are my way of honoring what is neither one nor the other, but is instead the beauty and wonder that is both and.
