  • Surrender

    Every surprise imaginable happened to me when I returned to the South after years of living in Manhattan. For example, an alligator once greeted me on my walk to my mailbox! 

    Yielding to the power of coincidence, this long term photo project from 2009 to 2020 finds forsaken offerings from things both familiar and bewildering in what’s been abandoned, feared, or cast off. Photographed on hikes, these nature landscapes, still life and animal portraits are from New Orleans (and near home in Slidell, Louisiana), Ainsley, Mississippi, Bayou La Batre and Point Clear, Alabama, Asheville, North Carolina, Kissimmee and Miami, Florida.

    There is something quietly spectacular about being alone in places potent with meaning.

    Editing this series during lockdown my thoughts circled back to what we know for sure about life. I’m asking questions about memory and what survives and remains in the South and why?

    And are we out of the woods yet?
