18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Horizontal Displacement, 1 second exposure from drifting boat.

My work explores the landscape and the natural forces that animate it. I am attempting to show something beyond the appearances; the experience of the observer in the landscape. I try to capture the feeling of being present in the landscape, by making images that are, to an extent, a direct imprint of the environment in motion. In this project I make exposures of the horizon from a small boat. The camera that is used as a tool to register movement becomes part of the movement it is mapping.
