Earth Series

These images were taken on a self-directed residency in New Zealand in June of this year. In order to tie my astronomy based practice with my ecological practice, I decided to pursue a series of landscapes that represent the deep time nature of our planet. Since leaving New Zealand in 2002, I have thought about these places continuously. They are the places that inspire me to protect all environments on Earth. These images endeavor to offer a window into largely untouched nature that has risen and fallen for millions and millions of years.
