sine sole sileo
Nature offers a perspective into this pure potential. I’ve always been inspired by the sublime black and white photographs of Ansel Adams, encouraging the viewer to head for the wilder parts of nature. Reciprocally, I often consider the cautious tale told by Robert Adams’s melancholy photographs of modern man’s caustic and distanced relationship to the American landscape. I was thinking, how can I engage with our national forests on the same level, to continue this artistic consideration and dedication to nature, when the history is well documented, and the future is uncertain? I decided to visit national parks across the country and work within them, with the same photographic precepts as Adams and Adams, but using a paintbrush instead – to try and enter the bloodstream rather than picture the pulse.
