These landscape photos represent an informal body of work – pictures I’ve taken exploring strange and familiar places. Unlike the desert, which requires a constant attention to the environment, these settings allow me to wander aimlessly and lose my bearings for a while. I find there is a great deal of mystery and accidental discovery in this ‘method.’
There are no people in these photos. These locations – remote mountain valleys or isolated Long Island byways – are lonely or abandoned places, animated only by the play of light. I sought to intentionally capture the silence in these settings and to explore the way the horizon line both grounds and drives the image. As with much of my work, I am also motivated to capture these places before they succumb to the encroaching development around them.
