Observations of places and things in a disconnected postmodern world
While sitting in a 1970's armchair with arm rests made from a felled native tree it is difficult to cleanly lament the impact of forestry on the landscape. But then, the contradictions of daily living should not stop us from questioning our actions and evaluating our stewardship of the land upon which we toil. Maybe photography can quietly help in that questioning and evaluation by producing thoughtful pictures that are worthy of reflection.
