Themes of history, remembrance and place form a basic core in my work. Whether it is photographing rituals of daily life or solitary journeys into the wilderness, the primary task has to do with listening. This means pulling back, asking questions, and remaining engaged with life and loss. Places of the greatest importance for me have not been official sites. Instead, the landscape of city streets, protest, dance, and the topography of vast uninhabited areas represent sacred places where I have felt a larger awareness and gathered spiritual strength.
