below the surface of objects 5

Photography; Inkjet Print, 2008

I have always felt there is something below the surface of objects, an "incorporeal essence" in the land that we all resonate with on a profound level. I believe this resonance is of primal origin. Our connection with the land is on the level of DNA, woven into the core of our being.

Each image is a single hand-held exposure of the basic elements of the land: tree, water, rock and light. This simplification of process and subject is designed to strip away distractions that hinder an emotive connection with the land. To this end, my imaging is less about the material world and more about an experience of emotive energetic moments.
