PARADOX NY This series tried to capture the ambiance of a a quiet Adirondack valley. In reality, visitors experience many facets of their environment simultaneously. This prompted me to explore how we form memories of a place as a multilayered creation. Different elements - ferns, streams, barbed wire - were combined into images. Although the resulting fusion ignores any conventional continuity of time and space, it incorporates both macro and micro, naturalistic and expressionistic details that embody the serendipity of this retreat.
