In a time in my life where little is steady, nature is eternal and unwavering. The places a go to make my photographs are preserved land and short of the ebb and flow of all things in the natural world, these places remain intact. It’s important for me to preserve memories and images of the things that are stable. Nature has always played a large role in my ability to find comfort and solace. Being in nature brings with it spirituality allowing me to be enveloped by the wonder of the natural world and to capture that essence. While experiencing these spaces I move slowly, exploring and making photographs. These photographs are made as a reminder of the grandeur of the nature and to invite the viewer to explore these places, or places like them.
