The photographs in the series From Here to There are not a description of a place; instead, the images are about engaging in a particular type of looking. Elements of “here” and “time” are included in the work; by photographing a moment that will never exist again, transitory objects are imbued with importance. A tree branch drifts, a puddle evaporates, and light shifts, slowly, but immediately. In the midst of this change, my photographs represent specific moments. Integral to the work is the act of finding the photograph, as is the act of framing, taking, and making the photograph. Each decision informs an image, and each image in turn informs a group of images. Although the images appear simple at first, the longer the viewer spends with the images, the more complicated the imagery becomes. The more connections the viewer finds, the more rewarding the act of looking becomes.
