For the Revolution
The boundary of the United States of America’s original 13 colonies encompasses roughly the county’s entire eastern coast—from Maine to Georgia and from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean to the Appalachian Mountains. This historically significant area is where most of the American Revolution was staged and where the principle foundations of our country were established.
This area is the main focus of my photographic pilgrimages, during which I travel to specific Revolutionary Battlefield sites and explore the surrounding landscapes. My explorations originate from a desire to understand the complex notions of freedom and independence that currently exist in our country.
The American Revolution was actually an unfinished revolution. Because of this, future generations were forced to continue to contest and define freedom in our democracy. I question what those fundamental principles look like today, how they are enacted on a daily basis and in what ways have they shaped the physical landscape.
