Landscapes behind road signs

Camera: Pentax K1000 with 50 f2 lens, all shot at 1/125th of a second(varying apertures)

Film: A single roll of Fuji Superia Xtra 400 rated at ISO 200.

Every wonder what’s behind that road sign you are speeding by? Here are a series of photographs exploring that question. What I discovered is a fascinating array of wild spaces that have their own unique often chaotic and unsettling look. Traces of human debris, roadkill, with struggling but resilient plant life. So much of what drives me to keep making photographs is because of the questions I ask and my mind’s relentless obsession to answer those questions with art. I hope you enjoy these photographs and thank you for looking.
