Digital History

In this work, the iconic landscape becomes a milepost.

We live in an era of change and convenience documented through ubiquitous imagery. The camera has become a casual companion, fundamentally altering photography and our perception and use of the medium. As a landscape photographer, I am interested in how this informs our awareness of the land, and, thus, our moment in history and perspective as both visitor and viewer.
