With area wetlands and tributaries as subjects, Liminal explores moments of transition: the space before daylight, almost winter, the edge of spring, the moment before rain, the mirage of fog.

In the beginning, I set out to create my own Edward Steichen’s 1904 pictorial The Pond ­­– Moonrise described by art critic Charles Caffin as “…the penumbra between the clear visibility of things and their total extinction into darkness.” Most of my time was spent in the marshes where the air is wet and thick, and the horizons are long and thin, broken mostly by tall pines or squat willows. Eventually, I began to take note of the constant struggle between the sun and the fog to illuminate and obscure the landscape.
