I love to photograph the man-altered landscape, showing how we organize a view and its access with roads, fences, and plantings.
Before European settlers, this spot in Shelburne, Vermont, USA would have been dense forest, rich in virgin timber. But by 1800, forest clearing was widespread.
I am interested in scenes that show the land at work.
I like things I don’t understand.
I like the pragmatic juxtaposed with the glorious.
I like new technology in a classic view.
There is disturbing beauty.
Grand nature frames grand man-made.
Some things end in devastation.
