This body of work derives from my near obsession with an aerial view of the world. I fly with my nose pressed to the window. I photograph the land, entranced with the patterns below. I have photographed cities by shooting nothing but cobblestone sidewalks, decorative manhole covers and cigarette-filled heater grates.
So my family was relieved when I returned from a job photographing painters, more excited by their palettes than by their paintings, and began work on this collection. These images were captured and developed over the following 18 months. They are aerials, yes – but they share the saturated colors and abstract design that characterize my other work. These are the grand landscapes of my dreams.
