On Landscape Photography

In recent years, I have found a new motivation to shoot landscape. But I have done this determined to create work that reflects the reality of a fragile, disrupted land. American’s have long used Landscapes in Art to advance agendas like Manifest Destiny. I believe in creating imagery that counterbalances the prevalent narrative that the land is unlimited, inviolable. The landscapes I see, while still very beautiful, are injured and disrupted. Rather than trying to present some fiction of enduring wilderness, I seek to present a view of a world dominated by, and unfortunately often trampled by, humans.
