Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.

Adopted State
In 2014 I moved from the Midwest, where I had lived all my life, to Portland, Oregon. This series of images is a documentation process, of not just the specific state of Oregon, but the larger region of the Pacific Northwest. Moving was not just a change of landscape or people, but of culture, a mindset, a way of being, that only the Pacific Northwest can offer. My exploration is only just beginning, but sharing my adopted state visually, with others, offers a glimpse of the beauty, majesty and true wilderness this region allows us to be a part of, something larger than ourselves, that of nature and the wild.
