Very pleased about this email submission I received this week. Check it out…
"The bulk of this work was created over a series of road trips taken between November 2012 and February 2013 throughout central Oregon and Southern Washington. My goal was to create images that were equally characteristic of the rural areas pictured and the changing American landscape as a whole.
Through documenting unpopulated, banal views of the rural areas of my home state I have attempted to construct a cohesive document of the America I see here and now, as
well as explore broader feelings about home, isolation and connection that may transcend any particular time or place.
I find myself constantly struggling with the paradoxical nature of my connection and attachment to this country- it’s ideals, it’s people, and the physical landscape- and the creation of this work has been a personal exercise in reconciliation.
