My photography documents the rapidly changing face of rural America and examines how we shape our environments and communities. My primary interest is exploring rural places and studying the human influence on the landscapes that surround us. I feel a deep sense of belonging in these locations which helps inform my photographic style. I work primarily in black and white to give the audience a sense of displacement from reality and give the image a timeless look. The work offers audiences an escape from the speed of modern life to contemplate and inspire future possibilities for our rural landscapes and communities.
