Forty Minutes, On Foot
The universal criteria for this series: the photographs were taken while I was on foot and within a forty minute radius walking from my front door. On foot, I’m bound to the obdurate fact of distance, topography, scale, weather, ecology, and climate, without a cushion of fossil fuel. As an exploration of the complete landscape where I live, the photographs are saturated by the realization that the boundaries we fortify in our human habitat—boundaries between civilized and wild, between ecology and technology, between paradigm and artifice—are not as precise as we wish them to be. Ultimately, these photographs rise from my belief that the area of human habitat within reasonable walking distance from everyone’s front door—in all it’s sublime destruction and fragmented beauty—is worthy of our reverence, of our appreciation, of our respect, of our time. Project is on-going.
