The Bronx River Statement 

My photographs explore the modern landscape. The images are informed by suburban New Jersey and by the struggle to articulate place amongst the strip malls and the wetlands. I aim to discuss the dilemma created by the persistence of romantic, humanist ideals in a technology-oriented world. Rather than illustrate a nature-technology binary, I hope to reveal the complexities of contemporary interaction with our environment. In my recent work, The Bronx River, a small ordinary river, almost hidden by the development that surrounds it, is examined in relation to the people who come to it for a sense of nature.
