Can't Be Lucky Every Day

As portraits of outwardly unexceptional areas, these images challenge the perception of the traditional concepts of landscape by approaching subject matter that is often overlooked and dismissed as unimportant or not worth preserving. Seemingly innocuous, these environments chronicle land that is caught in a cycle of change, never fully developed nor completely deconstructed. These landscapes in transition get pushed to the wayside, becoming marginalized by the ebb and flow of the ever-changing growth patterns of humankind. Piles built of discarded material collected from within these spaces have become landmarks that aid in the categorizing of these non-places, exhibiting a balance between the horizontality that exists everywhere around us and the angle of repose that is expressed within the mounds. In their present state, nothing good will come of these gaps in our terrain, and without documentation they will become forgotten.
