Introducing:  Second Nature

I'm thrilled to introduce my most ambitious body of work to date, Second Nature.  Made over 3 years entirely in Maine, these still and moving images address our changing relationship with Nature, from engagement to simulation. 

I wondered how living increasingly in an interior environment, in what author Richard Louv describes as an "electronic bubble," would affect how we engage, perceive and recall Nature.  I wanted to raise important questions about how we relate to Nature in a time of great environmental uncertainty and question photography’s role in this changing relationship. 


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.

10 photographs from the residency are being added to The Do Good Fund's collection.  This work would not have been possible without Do Good's generous support.

Current Exhibition: Birmingham Museum of Art

What's Lost is Found is now showing at the Birmingham Museum of Art, curated by Wassan Al-Khudhairi, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.  The exhibition has been extended and will now run through June 11, 2017.
