Sagebrush Stories

These pictures are observations in the landscapes of the American West. 

I am interested on the way the landscape reflects our history and our values, our myths and stories. History is embedded in the land:  the land shows what we did, what we went through and where we are. The landscape betrays our true values, and tells stories of ambition and vanity, success and failure, consequences and results, and how it all worked out.  I look for cultural imprint and for landscapes that tell the stories that we tell ourselves about ourselves.

The photographs are mostly on film, scanned and printed with pigment inks, in an edition of 12.
