Backcountry divides time and place. Each diptych represents two totally separate images made in entirely different locations or entirely different timespans. What appears to be a single image, is actually two photographs that often bridge gaps of several years or hundreds of miles. Hence, the photographs illustrate a new environmental narrative through an assemblage of space, place, and time. Simultaneously, this process becomes a study of my personal aesthetic through finding similarities in subject and composition over the course of my photographic career
