Altitude is useful. Being up high makes it easier to see and to be seen, simplifying observation, navigation, and celebration. When the high ground isn’t high enough, people tend to build their own. Perhaps the human tendency to build towers is influenced by the same natural instinct that drives plant life to grow up toward the sky.
I shot these images between 1984 and 2006. Earlier images are printed from a variety of film stocks, and more recent images are printed from digital camera files. Special thanks to Blowing Sands Studio/Laura Frost Fine Art (March-April 2006) and the Neighborhood Café (September-October 2006) for displaying this exhibition.
