I am fascinated by grey areas—the spaces in-between. Most of these photographs were taken in places that are neither wholly natural, nor wholly human-made. Virtually all were taken within 100-ft of a highway, a non-place that one goes to in order to be somewhere else. Photography is often used to bring clarity and definition – to pluck moments out of the stream of time and fix them so that they can be examined and considered. In many of these photos, though, I deliberately reduced the clarity, using the view camera’s movements to throw large portions of the scene out of focus. I found this to be both aesthetically pleasing and a way to accentuate the ambiguous nature of the locations.
