“The photographs were created during the summers of 2015 and 2016 in Monet’s Gardens in Giverny, Rouen and other regions in the Normandy coast. For this work I used my Tent/Camera. This device that I invented utilizes a periscope-like optical mechanism that brings nearby views directly onto whatever ground is beneath the tent. These photographs are the product of the visual sandwich of the projection and the ground. I love seeing how the changing ground surface alters the views into something half painterly, half photographic.”
