America, From the Road

Nothing should be wasted. Our time in between destinations is not merely transitory, but an opportunity to dream, to create new connections, and to recognize beauty in unexpected places. It is this beauty that this portfolio explores to create metaphors for our dream of a simpler world, a world of beauty and unspoiled by human actions. The images are captured digitally, but printed in the albumen process, pushing the sentimentality to the point where the beauty of nature juxtaposed with visual reminders of the contemporary nature of their capture, indicated by concrete, blacktop, and reflections from the windshield, remind the viewer these images speak as much of the impact humans have on the world as they speak about nature's grandeur and endurance.
