Home in the World; An Apocalyptic Travelogue
Home in the World is a new photographic series inspired and realizedthrough my travels and travails with my “lonesome cowboy” partner, and our packof two animals. In Greek, the word Apocalypse means "lifting of the veil" or"revelation", and is a disclosure of something hidden from themajority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception.
Home in the World explores our place and displacement out in theyet-wild parts of the American West and uses forced perspective, tilt-shiftphotography and selective blurring as a tool to isolate minute detail withinthe grandeur and overwhelming scale of the terrain. Combined in unorthodoxways, the photography and effects in Home in the World advance an aesthetic created to unveil the hiddenmeanings in ordinary things.
Using the framework of a pictorial “travelogue”, Homein the World posits an imagined postapocalyptic future.
