You Are Here: Number One in a New Series

You Are Here, No. 1

You Are Here, No. 1

Artists are always driven to create, and as I’ve traveled the West looking for its essence, I’ve been driven by the creative question, “What is this Place?” The capital “P” is intentional, for after all, is not every location a proper noun to those who live there?

In fact, I would now unequivocally state that “What is this Place?” is the motto of my life’s work in photography, as I’ve tried to write it.

And so, as I looked at a directory in a mall, my daughter beside me, the both of us searching for a shop that had moved, a new theme of photographs struck me, staring at me from the illuminated, gaudy plexiglas sign: YOU ARE HERE.

Please welcome the first of the series, shot at a lonely rest area on a secluded highway in western Kansas.
