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 understand how I fit into this intimate environment and why I was attached to a place I had known for only a short time. After being printed each image was hand sanded with sandpaper then overprinted with a second and third different image.  Each image was sanded before the next image was printed on top. This process resulted in one single unique final image. Abrading the landscape images reflected time, history and my personal involvement.
