Out of Town is a series from several cross country trips from the Pacific Northwest to and around the Great Basin of the South West. It contains man-made structures that, over time, start to take on the nature of the landscape around them. Human figures at a Dairy Queen become little more than objects in a landscape. sightseers try to become one-with-the-landscape but instead sometimes clash. These are basically photos of, as Barthes would put it, "what is already there," they are preoccupations. Every year I travel, looking to understand the landscape of North America through an exploration of the common place, and what the people do with it.
