“The Forest is probably the most complicated and personal series I’ve undertaken. I photographed for this series from 2011 through 2016. All of the imagery has been photographed in the Selkirk Mountains, in NE Washington State… As beautiful a place as it is, however, there is a very palpable sense of mystery and darkness…Fallen trees and jagged branches litter the forest floor. Majestic pines give way to a more gnarled mass of decayed and fallen trees, dense thickets of overgrowth, and clusters of anthropomorphic trees… The images are interwoven with thoughts on mortality, discovery, loss and renewal.”
