The Solivagant

(n.) Solivagant: a solitary wanderer

Black and white film photographs with rangebound print editions, this photographic survey from the Great Lakes Coastal Districts reflects the rhythmic movement and visual harmonics of the landscape. The use of space in each film plate contemplates the unknown histories of each place, whereas the limbs and roots appear as ancient sinew amidst gradations of light, resilient evidence of a universe that is permanent, even if the solivagant is not.
