  • The Road to the Oxbow
  • This series explores the mundane, roadside spaces on the way to the view of Thomas Cole's painting The Oxbow. It is not the direct route, but instead a metaphorical journey through layers of time with power lines acting as a guiding force through a landscape of sprawl. I construct each photograph like a Hudson River School painting, paying attention to powerful lighting, skies and the creation of vast space. Upon arriving to the top of Mount Holyoke, I turn away from the view. Instead I photograph the parking lot on top of the mountain show how painterly representation does not match reality and the prevalence of spaces of dross in the American landscape.
