Traces

My photographic projects often concern the evidence of change in the landscape. This has led me into burnt forests, flood-ravaged canyons, and wind-sculpted badlands. But fire, flood, and storms are blunt instruments of change. These photographs, by contrast, explore subtler influences on the landscape. They reveal evidence of acts of change, but not the acts themselves.

They show where an elk slept, where an alligator passed through, where the wind pushed down grasses, where water sculpted reeds. These events happened out of my sight but left traces that I record.
