I trace the surface of the land. I walk and create images that hold on to a piece of history and offer an aid to memory. I remember myself in that land and know how it has shaped me. Place becomes a map, and the images become a still of my own peregrinations, a stasis of my movement.

Working exclusively with an 8×10 camera, I am concerned with the maps that can be found in our surroundings; collections of clues which indicate a direction to those who will follow. My imprint, left behind, is as reassuring as the one found. There are moments when I am searching and a ghost will hover into focus, and the fascination materializes before me.

    “Why aren’t revolutions started by the most humane people?
