This collection of three-hundred looking down images represents a particular method of seeing and understanding the ground plane. Walking allows the photographer to navigate constructed spaces slowly and with intention. With intention, the critical eye supplants the distracted gaze. With each moment of pause a world of materiality, composition, color, microclimates and habitat unfold, bringing with it accumulated knowledge about the complex built and natural systems in which we live. This work joins the conversation started by activists (The Situationists), artists (Richard Long) and landscape architects (Vogt Landscape Architects) to employ walking as method of knowing and reinterpreting our environments from a critical perspective, bringing it into the twenty-first century through the lens of the iPhone.

The sky images reflect a meditation on what lies above, on the expanse of sky that dwarfs our diminutive stature. The simple act of tipping one’s head towards the sky implies reflection, rumination and reverie. The camera brings the contemplation into focus and provides a scaffold for deeper understanding of time and place.
