Trade Cloth, 10 x 10 in. 

128 Pages / 80 Color Photographs  

Plucked from their original context, Collections illuminates bird skins, bleached bones, clipped ferns, and museum artifacts with sun and light, giving them new definition. The subject matter of each series created is dictated by discoveries, bridging past to present, honoring both the specimens and the medium of photography.


Collections is particularly timely during the centennial year of the National Park Service, and as museum collections find themselves in a state of crisis due to diminishing funding and support. This focus on parks is a way of preserving these fragile specimens that represent American history. This body of work sheds light on the importance and significance of the collections and their impact on science, history, the humanities, and the hundreds of thousands of visitors who leave their footprints on our national parks.
