I am fascinated with the world from above; from the sky each corner of our world is unique. The land shifts and morphs as a result of agriculture, natural forces, and the effects of mankind, resulting in sad but beautiful places. Sometimes change occurs as a result of years of action, other times it is sudden and without warning. My interests lie where the change is most dramatic: salt flats, suburban spread, deforestation, and agriculture. I hope that people take away from my work that there is an unrecognized beauty in every detail of the land. Although our situation is dire, there remains wonder in the healing power of nature and an opportunity for rebirth and rejuvenation. I hope that my work inspires others to explore the world from a new vantage point, find beauty in what they see, and strive to protect it.
