Entry Description

I have been traveling the globe to photograph dams, primarily concrete arch dams since 2010. The series is called Claustra. The most recent series features concrete arch dams of California, including some of the most historically significant structures that have been essential to the controversial discourse of environmental conservation. The goal is to create a comprehensive collection of photographs of dams for a monograph.
