The Driftless might be described as the ultimate ‘forgotten’ place. It was formed as a result of being overlooked – bypassed by glaciers of the last ice age. The unique topography, some of it very difficult to traverse, creates a distinctive place with its own particular – some call it cosmic – identity which spans four states, transcending human boundaries. My investigations in the Driftless range in the rural areas of Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa.
"My mission as an imagemaker is to better understand and engage the world around me. I photograph to understand, looking deeply to better see. My images are a means to share this deeper vision, asking questions to better know a culture and a way of life; a springboard for conversations, and a bridge between urban and rural life."
