Perhaps the interest that underlies all my work is the relationship between culture and nature, humankind and our landscape. How do we occupy and treat our world? My work is about place – place created and defined by man in relationship to nature, sometimes in concert, sometimes in defiance, creating beauty and devastation. I value a sense of place, collective and individual memory, and identity in relation to the land. I’m interested in the domestic, private, and the small gesture. My photographs document and report on our sense of place. Some images are amusing, ironic, and puzzling; some imply social and political consequences. I photograph and make art to make sense of my world and to give form to that sense. It is a process and search for understanding.
