Natural Occurrence and Construction

Natural Occurrence and Construction depicts predominantly natural environments and instances of human manipulation of such environments. The work was made in parklands and the corners of bucolic areas in the Great Lakes and James Bay regions of Michigan and Ontario. In these places, society’s footprint flagrantly contrasts with the natural environment. Within this work the author seeks to raise questions pertaining to his regional culture’s valuation of these environments in such a way as to turn the questions inward towards the viewer. This is an attempt to convey an intimacy conducive to contemplation of one’s place within such landscapes.
