In early 2001, I began to selectively incorporate artificial light in photographing found objects within the landscape. The electronic flash strategically placed and fired during the exposure highlights the fact that a disturbance has taken place. Revealing the finality of the event, the subject is frozen by the specific shift of light – akin to crime scene photography.

Retrieving the Scattered relies on and explores the unpredictable anomaly in the landscape and spurs the questions of investigation. These queries echoing the element of time, place and circumstance intertwine within the domesticated landscape and the grandeur of the untamed.
