While heading off on the open road to make these photographs I deliberately avoided visiting familiar iconic destinations. Instead, I travelled with an eye toward discovering places along the way where the built environment merged with the natural landscape.
Although The NATURE/CULTURE Project photographs are of places void of people, I believe a human trace is visible in each picture and, with this in mind, I see my images of these spaces as social landscapes.
It is precisely the absence of people along with a sense of their presence, as seen in the marks, changes and artifacts left in the environment, I now find most fascinating.
