Storied Landscapes

In 1989 while using the Polaroid 20x24 camera in the studio, I was able to place clear acetates of my writing inside the back of the camera. Shortly thereafter, while traveling in the Southwest with my medium format camera, I began to see language everywhere not only in the written petroglyphs left by the Anasazi but in the layers of geology revealed in the landscape. As I looked through the viewfinder, I saw a new field in which to record my own stories while including those of an ancient culture. This was another way for me to “map” the landscapes of the Southwest.
