Slow Drift #1
Archival Pigment Print from Chemigram Lumen Print exposed in Rockville, MD
9 x 12 inches
"Slow Drift is a lyrical series of photographs that explores concepts of home, land, boundaries, and afterlives. Former tobacco farms in Maryland provided the starting point. I followed the reverberations of these sites on communities, topsoil, waterways, ownership, and development. These works were made by combining the lumen and chemigram process through exposing light-sensitive paper to photo chemicals and different materials without a camera. The work considers the physicality of place, the subtleties of light and the ways that history imprints on locations, which in turn shapes our present. The prints are meditations on false territories, the gathering and storytelling process, environmental damage and the soil itself."
