Phototerragrams
Project info

A series of images printed using Polaroid film negative that have been buried in the ground making up the original subject of the photograph. I wanted to go beyond traditional Landscape Photography by giving control of the final image composition to the land itself. Thus the landscape takes an active, rather than the traditional passive, role in determining the final image. More specifically, the microorganisms within the soil are partially responsible for creating the composition of the final image by their action of decomposition. The new term Phototerragram best describes my multi-process result.
