  Pioneers, Newberry Hill Clearcut I,  2015, 22" x 30" h, 100% cotton rag paper  In my ongoing series  Pioneers , I consider the possibilities for regeneration in disturbed landscapes by documenting the plants that first colonize bare ground. Last year a neighbor clearcut a large section of forested land that I used to frequent.  After the clearcut, ground previously shaded by the forest canopy was exposed to direct sunlight, allowing a new generation of plants to establish. Using cyanotypes, a photographic process that requires the same direct sunlight, I made portraits of these new landscapes.
