Abnormalities of form introduce perceptive aberrations, rendering a certain kind of uncanniness. Photography’s propensity for illusion heightens this optical deception.

These peculiarities, when framed by the lens, take on a sculptural form and reveal nature’s hand in shaping interventions we’ve made on the landscape, and thus their inherent transitory condition.
