Darkness obscures and sunlight reveals, but dusk – the liminal moment in between – suggests. It is a temporal sanctuary where seer and seen mingle, when the perceived world becomes an equation: part human invention, part environmental reality.

The moved-camera digital photographs in this exhibition represent ecologically critical locations in the Brazilian Amazon, Wales, Oregon, Nova Scotia, and New England. They were created with light and movement only, and were not computer generated in any way.
