I photograph landscapes that operate visually on an iconic (or at least a familiar) level, but I shoot them from an angle, or with a particular focus or exposure that alters the viewer’s perceived sense of space or scale. I do not wish to create photographic documents of places or fully digested, subjective impressions; rather, I want my photographs to exist somewhere in between. And while I want to project my personal vision of the landscape toward the viewer, more important is the viewer’s own connection to that vision, be it alien or familiar.
