Pack Ice

As an exploration of a landscape that is both revealed and obscured by light, this project developed from an ongoing interest in the ability to make photographs of distant lands to which the mind has traveled, but the body has not been.

Thinner Air

Thinner Air spotlights the narrative that happens between juxtaposed images and the possibility of referencing large ideas with small things.

This photographic book project shows the construction and imminent flight of a small model plane. Soon into the airplane’s flight however, the photographic perspective changes from staring at the plane under construction to a vantage point from within the plane during flight. This experimental book examines a spatial shift in perspective in several different ways, and questions the viewer’s assumption that the original toy plane, because of its modest scale, was simply a toy and safely nostalgic.

Thinner Air is a 48 page artist book printed in a limited edition of 150 copies . SOLD OUT
Exhibition prints of individual images are printed as 16x20" archival pigment prints. Ed. of 10.

Folded in Place

The photographs in this series are informed by the varied ways that photography, mapping, drawing and sculpture have each tried to describe the landscape. By incorporating each of these methods, Folded in Place highlights the abstraction of the landscape traditionally offered by these means, while creating a tangible photographic “place” in each image that is occupied by a mapped construction. The images therefore provide precise photographic and mapped information while at the same time offering an abstraction of the landscape itself. The viewer is shown a landscape that is simultaneously understood and unknown, a landscape in which the map obtains a new geography of its own.

All images are 24x30” digital c-prints. Ed. of 10.

The Cut Path

By choosing to use remote abandoned telephone lines as a means of moving into the landscape, a path was set. Yet the path marked by telephone poles is not a mapped one, and the traveler therefore continues without the larger picture of the journey. The resulting photographs are themselves markers of these unmapped journeys. In essence, these are images derived from the process of getting lost.

Images are 20x24" pigment prints. Ed. of 10.
