Vestige

The rules for this series was simple: photograph the same area of land surrounding my house for a year. I walked the land, recording my observations, paying careful attention to the changing light and shifting habitat of the four seasons. I was surprised to discover that this area, so familiar to me, was home to a previously unseen, diverse community of life. My goal was to give voice to these observations and place them into the context of the climate crisis. After being printed each image was hand sanded with sandpaper then overprinted with a second and third different image that were also sanded. This process resulted in one single unique final image. Abrading the landscape images offered a metaphor for the manner in which the hand of humankind is defacing the Earth.
