Entry Description

Land. Sea. Sky. We think of them as three very separate realms divided by clear boundaries. However, when you truly examine things on a molecular level, the land, sea, and sky are intricately linked. From the climate, to the water cycle, to the carbon cycle, the divisions we make between land, sea, and sky may not be as definitive as we think they are. This series conceptually explores these connections.

About Photographer

Most of my photography falls into the area of conceptual, nature photography, but I also use some of my less abstract photography to illustrate environmental issues on which I am working. I like to explore the themes of how things interact, how one thing can become another, and how the way we understand something changes when we see it from different point of view. I’m interested in boundaries (and the lack of boundaries), and I often explore this with the camera through the study of color and motion. I am a California native but now live in Sun Valley, Idaho. I went to Stanford University for my B.S. and M.S. in marine biology and spent most of my time at Stanford's marine station in Monterey, California. I have been working in the field of marine science and policy for the last six years.
