The landscape echoes an internal terrain, simultaneously marking and blurring difference. Exploring the geography of the land, I search changing and transitional landscapes, places I
can feel a sense of communication. Response is quiet and often slow. Sometimes I will walk for hours and make no pictures, sometimes I make many, but show none.
In my working method with a 4×5 press camera, things slow down and moments of contemplation are possible. I often photograph at dusk, when color bleeds from the sky and the sublime reveals itself. As the light of day dims, time and movement become an integral part of the photographic process. These Grand Places are collected from many different places in the American landscape, and abroad while at two different residencies in France.
