Balancing Act
A visual conversation about the tension between exploring and protecting the natural world. This recent, unique and unpublished series of diptychs is searching for a home. The act founding the National Park Service asked it to balance preservation and development. I created a series of diptychs capturing this conflict by pairing images of nature and of how people interact with it. During my 2015 artist-in-residency at Zion National Park, flash flooding killed 7 hikers in the park, punctuating the ferocity and unforgiving purity of our wild lands. These images from one park reflect the universal challenge of experiencing and protecting the natural world.
