I photograph while in motion, usually from Amtrak trains. This perspective on the earth – both tethered and gliding – provides a unique vernacular to record the passing of time through the years, seasons, and light. The elevated platform of the train reveals soft, hidden scenes normally unseen. As the landscape shifts, I focus on an approaching detail, patiently watching and waiting as patterns in nature and the built environment align to form something new and fleeting.
