Artist's Statement

Forest Fragmented by 64 Exposures, Archival inkjet print, 2013.

The world's forests are getting chopped up into smaller and smaller bits of land.
This is what ecologists call this forest fragmentation, and it’s bad for ecosystems.
So, keeping the horizon straight, I moved my camera in a circle for 64 exposures.
And I effectively fragmented a small patch of forest in Southern Maryland.
