Within the bedrock of this planet, there are untold stories of history, of continental journeys, of coasts that bear witness to it all. My work is about capturing these untold stories by focusing on the smallest details held within the Earth’s crust. I explore geological features, worn surfaces, and glacial intrusions that reflect this ongoing transformation.
Using macro-photography as the starting point for my prints, my goal, however, is not to document the physical, but to share my intuitive response to these ancient and on-going stories. I work to reveal details, evoke movement through patterns, and add layers to share a sense of place, of time, and of personal journey.
