Urban Wilderness

Imagine an urban wilderness. Imagine that there can be places in and near a city where people can go to experience the natural environment—rivers, woodlands, marshes, wildlife, even solitude. The goal of the Urban Wilderness Project is not only to imagine the paradox but to envision and promote it through photography and writing.

Urban Wilderness is the paradoxical concept that informs my worldview and inspires much of my art.

Urban Wilderness also is a conceptual context for a series of photographic projects that began in 1997 and are on-going. Some of these projects are intended to bridge art and activism. The various projects are unified by the thematic vision of an environment that integrates what is urban with what is wild. I live in a city, I live with nature and I live within a paradox that I perceive as urban wilderness.
