Artist Statement
Stories Told In Things Left Behind: A Disappearing American Landscape The eldest son of a historian, I'm interested in the architectural artifacts and geologic history of the West. As an explorer, I use the lens to further my examination of interesting manmade and natural subjects. As an artist, I'm interested in the effects of the passage of time on a geologic and a human scale. Sweeping western vistas, quirky artifacts & architectural details highlight my work. Whether photographing patterns of wind and water in a desert canyon or the textures of a faded ranch, my visual commentary echoes the politics, history and cultures that collided in Westward expansion. Each image invites the viewer to imagine her own story in the things we've left behind.
