Every thing is not all right is an exhibition drawn from my ongoing series View from Home which began in 2017.

Because I live at 7200 ft, the sky is ever-present and ever-changing. It captures my attention and elicits a photographic response almost daily. My interest in these images is one of empowering the print with an emotional or poetic equivalence to the text—both of which are captured within a 24-hr timeframe—as a way of reconciling these moments in time and history through eliciting a visceral response.

The coincidence of the 2017 inauguration and my approaching career shift to my studio practice ten months later acutely focused my attention on time and place—my time in my life, my geographic place, my view from this place in the context of national and world events. Time and place have always been part of my photographic inquiries but not within the realm of politics. The View from Home series (#viewfromhomephotoproject) is an endeavor to balance disparate elements of image and text.

Every thing is not all right reflects a time when the fast-paced, immediate, and reactive hyper-social media escalated dramatically. Truth and lies. Discord and division. Pandemic. Climate. Democracy. All challenged.

The 38 images in the exhibition are archival pigment prints on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper and are available in editions of 3. Images are captured on an iPhone and printed by the photographer. The complete exhibition is available to view here.
