Hinterlands, series no. 1

(n.) Hinterlands:  the often uncharted areas beyond a coastal district. 

Color negative film originals with rangebound print editions, this photographic work is a survey of man’s relationship with the considerable coastal landscape of the Great Lakes. The waters appear restrained with the regressive light of the fifth season. Here, backroad and blue highway abstractions permeate the work; the hardened steel of man's enterprise, leftover from the industrial revolution, emerges as contrast within these North American Coastal Districts. This is the Hinterlands.
