Landscapes, even when their general type is similar, are capable of as many expressions as the same type of human face, and, without our being able fully to tell why, affect our spirits as we look at them with as many moods and meanings.
— William Hurrell Mallock

What is place?

A twist on the traditional landscape painting, this series experiments with capturing the emotion of a moment using photos shot in 35mm film on disposable cameras and static embroidered geometry.

Each image juxtaposes the spontaneity of the photograph with the planned and precise lines of the embroidered design, and contrasts the highly saturated colors of thread and magazine images with the often washed-out, imprecisely exposed photograph.

The results are strangely satisfying abstract compositions of color and line, which are able to both obscure and highlight the photograph's original subject: the landscape.
