Disorienting Landscapes, 2008-2018 (ongoing)
My aesthetic was incubated in the west coast landscape photography tradition, tainted by the nihilism of the grunge generation, and enabled by my wanderlust. The sites I choose to photograph are places that confront me, catch me off guard, challenge my expectations. My perceptions falter with the horizon. There is the natural, but also the disturbed: the human presence. At times, disconcerting beauty emerges; animals appear; everything lines up.
This body of work is the translation of my shock at the world into the normalcy of a landscape photograph.
