BFA Thesis

I explore and expose man-made landscapes of our surrounding environment, and question the perception of what is natural. Parks, front lawns, reserves, marshes, forests and groves are just as constructed, manipulated and mapped as the buildings that surround them. The wilderness is no longer wild. These photographs seek a shift in consciousness and collective memory, and encourage thinking in geological time. Through these efforts, the work will prompt conversations that promote awareness and recognition of the destructive history that lies behind seemingly serene settings.
