Artist Statement:
After 14 years of documenting poverty in the developing world, I find that the landscapes of the American West ground me literally and spiritually. For me, these landscapes are a healing balm to the soul and the photographs are imbued with the emotion that I bring to the land for release. I believe that the transformative nature of our national treasures needs to be documented and shared with those who may not have the opportunity to experience in person.

My residency at Zion is a driving force to bring into focus what I owe to the land and the Earth for the gifts the natural world has given me, and how important it is to share those gifts.
