View From A Mountain
2009-10

I sometimes journey to the top of a mountain bordering downtown Tucson, Arizona, bringing with me a digital camera with a long telephoto lens. From this high vantage point I am able to survey the built landscape below and look for evidence that may provide clues about those who inhabit this landscape. Processing the photographs with a computer, I blur all but the object of my initial attention. In this toy-like world, what we see is familiar and strange, real and unreal.

This series of photographs examines who we are and how and where we live. The photographs also explore the narrowing distinction between the “real” and the “made-up” and new technology’s role in that relationship.
