My work stems from an intimate relationship with the landscape of the mountain west. Raised in the high desert of central Wyoming, I have spent a large amount of my life on public lands. This unique relationship with the land combined with a passion for photography has led me to seek out new ways to explore our use of the land through my art.  Concepts involving control, land use designations, and scientific study are enduring themes that are prevalent in the majority of my work. 

 

I wish to transcend the aestheticization issues of landscape photography with my work and create images that articulate the contemporary issues facing the mountain west.
