Coping with the Landscape

Coping with the landscape refers to my fear of the state of the contemporary landscape - Fear generated by the loss of humanity in the land that supports the movement of capital first, and the needs of the locality second. To cope, this series of photographs follows the intermediate zone, which crosses the borders of infrastructure space and domestic space, searching for a path through the land which is not prescribed. Illuminated by billboards and street lights, a plague of winter snow captures the turbulence felt by the occupants of the land, struggling to cope with the instability of this man-made landscape.
