Fossils (2016 - ongoing)
The photographs in this series were taken around the urban landscape and later buried there. Distilled over lengthy durations, these film transparencies interact with minerals and humidity of the soil to decay, transform and mutate over time. This material process is an attempt to collaborate with place by allowing elements of the landscape to more overtly steer the photographic inscription process. Through collaboration with the landscape, Fossils presents the inherent disorder, chaos, turmoil and beauty of nature; qualities reflected formally in the shapes, colors and texture of the work itself.
