Artist Statement

The series Sediments and Sunlight aims to generate experiences for wayfinding, disorienting and reorienting our sense of time and space in a complicated present. The photographs focus on the material history of the Crowsnest Pass area of southwestern Alberta. The exposed strata of the mountains surrounding Crowsnest Pass serve as a reminder of the extraordinary amount of time and energy which has produced our environment. Found within the layers of strata are seams of coal; dense black bands of compressed extinct organisms who thrived over 100 million years ago.
