Leave No Trace

Artist Statement

The images I’ve focused on in this work are all images pertaining to people and the traces, footsteps, influences, etc that they leave in the places they’ve been. I focused mainly on natural settings with the intent of depicting some of how humans interact with nature.

In most parks and public gardens there are signs that tell us to clean up after ourselves and generally make it appear as through we have not been there: in other words, to leave these places the same as they were when we entered them. The fact is, however, the ability to control what mark you leave on any place is very difficult. From the tallest building to the smallest footprint, humans will always leave some trace of their presence.
