Statement:

Beginning with our last months in Alaska, our home of 5 years, this series follows our route along the Alaska-Canada Highway, the Alaska Marine Highway and then down the Pacific Coast towards Southern California. I was inspired to create images that mimic the sensory and visual cues of recollection; personal but also true to experience. The captured, fleeting moments are grounded in the photographic real, however, because the images are isolated from a larger continuum, their meaning remains precarious and open ended.
