Back Roads

These images come from my project Back Roads about places and/or activities that induces a prescribed experience. Just like how a photograph is framed and groomed, I wanted to explore how nature could be controlled and presented in the same manner. My initial attraction was to scenic overlooks, and campgrounds because of convenience of parking your car and stepping into nature is a double-edged sword — on one hand anyone can have the chance to enjoy these vistas, but on the other hand these landscapes shape the anticipation of how a place will be.
