Faulkner said "The past isn't dead; it isn't even past” pointing out that while we might think that history might not play a factor in our modern world, there are invisible forces that affect our surroundings.  Geological spots are shaped by the tales, myths and ideas that history brings.  My work explores both the places and the forces that have an effect on the physical world. Growing up in a suburb of San Francisco that had almost no documented history, I have always been fascinated by any place that had a past that gives it importance. Through documenting both the place and the experience of being there, I am giving the audience an understanding of what it is to be at that certain spot and go beyond the aesthetic into a deeper understanding of the aura of a geographical location.
