My project, “Land Marks,” consists of an exhibition and book of color photographs examining New England as a place with a distinct landscape, atmosphere, and history that can be read in the roads and paths. The project puts my contemporary images, made in winter with color negative film and a medium-format camera, into historic and contemporary context. Emotional content is imparted by the quality of light, the square format of the images, and the specific arrangement of the images in the exhibition and accompanying book. The project explores the implications of familiarity with a particular place and the theories of human traces and human-environmental interaction.
