Cedar Creek, Photography (2018-19) Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve is the preeminent site for ecological research and among its significant firsts, foremost is the site’s genesis of modern ecological theory. Although Cedar Creek has its share of scenic beauty, my work questions this abstract principle and the binary of pure wilderness or anthropogenic despoliation by placing human activities into the landscape image. The site’s unique purpose and its apparatus of experimentation further informed and ultimately changed how I construct landscape imagery. Walking the burnt savannas, experiencing the unexpected, indecipherable structures in wet meadows or forested glades induced a sense of the occult at which point the idea of enchantment with special places, of which Cedar Creek has come to be a contemporary example, became a current running through each image.
