bloodroot (2016 - ongoing)
A perennial photographic survey of family land in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The chemical isoprene has been identified as one of the main elements casting the spine of the southeastern Applachains in cyan tinted fog. I work on days with zero visibility, which is defined in meteorology as the condition when visiblity drops to less than 100 meters. The atmosphere serves as an active narrative agent. Additional direction is taken from land survey documents, site history, archival photographs, earth processes, and family members.
