I create and photograph performance-activated landscapes. My interest lies in the process by which the images come to life: the intention or concept, the creation of props, and the performance. I rely on the serendipity of movement and collaboration with others and with the unpredictable elements of my chosen environment.
My work is inspired by a sense of discovery and imagination and informed by the uncertainty and choice currently facing us as a species. I aim to capture a sense of optimism that teeters somewhat magically on the fragile balance of our shaking, shifting planet.
* Ela Lamblin (photographed) constructed the Arctic Tern puppet which was commissioned by the Alaska Wilderness League and the Backbone Campaign to raise awareness for the effects of global warming on migratory birds. The Arctic Tern’s global migration is the longest regular migration by any known animal.
