Build Your Own Landscape

 
The forecast looks good
 
The Romantic in you
 
The Romantic in you
 
This Land Was Made For You and Me
 
The weather is beautiful
Wish you were here
A storm rolled in
 

Build Your Own Landscape

Cast shadows projected onto wall, created by screenprint on acrylic panels mounted to wall, with moveable color films and found objects

Printed from photographs from hiking trips in Alaska and California, this body of work stems from my ongoing research in the development of wilderness sites and the traditions of early 20th Century American landscape photography. Stemming from an interest in the cultural and political issues embedded in the development of the National Park system and the creation of "wilderness", the works also touch upon Romanticism, aesthetics, and memory.
