Natural Selection

The contemporary landscape is detailed and intricate. It is divided into segments that are separately owned and diversely maintained. Through photography I am exploring these unique subsections that form this complex environment. I am observing and recording these characteristics to better understand the makeup of my surroundings. I am interested in learning why particular locations are given such special attention. I am focusing on variations of land, which reveal an individual's personal reflection of, and relationship to the environment. Directly manipulating and placing objects within the landscape conveys this interconnection. Often, the attempt is to emulate an ideal natural world. I am especially drawn to interactions that are distinct and whimsical. I view these spaces as types of sub-landscapes, which when assembled depict an eccentric man-made world. These images are my contemplation of artificial environments with quirky intricacies that describe the formation of the modern landscape.
