Entry Description

My CARBON DATING series looks at human land use--and misuse--around the planet. I have produced images in open pit mines in the United States, in Australia and in the Czech Republic. I have shot in lumber camps, on dairy farms, near run away wildfires and in waste dumps. In June of this year I launched at Kickstarter campaign to raise fund for a trip to East Africa to shoot images of the last remaining large animal migration. I will depart on August 14 to develop the last images of this series. They will be published in book form.
