Evolution generally occurs at an extremely slow rate, a process that spans hundreds and thousands of years. Within the past hundred thousand years we as humans have evolved into creatures that have lost touch with our natural heritage. We destroy in order to create. We tear down a forest to build a parking lot. Photography itself has also evolved, by stepping away from its chemical past and into the future of instant gratification.

Using alternative photographic processes helps me travel back to an earlier time. It forces me to slow things down and appreciate the serendipity of the unknown-conditions that seem lost to most practitioners today. Embedding images inside the leaves of plants I document the separation from our natural past or a fruitless return to it. It’s a visitation, a reminder of sorts. There is no byproduct of this process, no waste, no fillers only a semi recorded event that will vanish with the deterioration of the printed surface.
