LANDSCRAPES is an exploration in the moment-to-moment change of particles in a microcosm.  It’s an exploration of the texture and nature of tiny objects as they get scraped by landscape and sky. I have printed large-scale photographic images of micro objects, focusing to expose erosion and corrosion and the ways in which dust and elements of change mark passage of time.

We live in a panorama.  I’m curious about the very smallest detail in a panorama, engulfed by landscape and sky.  What is revealed in everyday detail?  Is there an otherworldly aesthetic underneath?  

Photography is an enigma.  It’s an artificial rendering of the real.  We make images relevant merely by choice.  And the camera is just a tool.  It scrapes away at reality and we see what we want to see.

If we scrape away everything, then what is left? My answer is everything.
