Seven years in the field, and the book:
I photograph the natural and the engineered world, making pictures which help to illustrate our collective autobiography. This narrative, as far as I am successful, describes our shared history - and lends insight as we design our common future.
Landscape After Industry is a long term photographic documentation of the deconstruction of El Paso's masssive ASARCO Smelter and the site's environmental remdiation. My project has jumped the smelter bounry to include the Guggenheim family's 20th century ASARCO operations from Colorado to northern Mexico. I will continue traveling, researching and photographing this vast engineered landscape through 2017. The University of New Mexico Press will publish Landscape After Industry in 2018.
