"Lauren Henkin’s works question how nature is presented and perceived through photography and technology. This 8-part photograph is part of Henkin’s eScapes series, wherein she downloaded copyright-free images from Wikipedia—in this case a NASA photo of the Andromeda Galaxy—and then re-photographed the images on her computer monitor in great detail with a large format camera."


Introducing:  What's Lost is Found

I'm very happy to share a new body of work, What's Lost is Found, a series of photographs made in May, 2015 as the inaugural Artist-in-Residence for The Do Good Fund, a non-profit based in Columbus, Georgia, whose mission is to collect and exhibit photographs taken in the American South since World War II.  The residency was based in Hale County, Alabama, the heart of the Black Belt and sacred terrain for any photographer.
