Photographs abstract time and manipulate space. The monocular view through the camera lens collapses deep space onto a 2-dimensional picture plane. Often this collapse renders a powerful physical experience of place quite impotent when translated to the photographic surface. Maps are also an abstraction of space, as well as a code or language that describes the place to those that know the language. These two abstracted views are combined to give multiple readings of the same place – an edge overlooking Big Indian Gorge seen through a curtain of Mountain mahogany.
