Biography

I use photography to examine themes of ecology, environmentalism, and perceptions of landscape while striving to strike a balance between art history and natural history. To do so, I employ a range of photographic approaches, from documentary strategies to experimental techniques.

My photographs have been featured in National GeographicSlateWiredThe GuardianNatureNew Scientist, and TIME's Lightbox, to name a few. And they've been shown at numerous venues, including the Cleveland Museum of Art, Noorderlicht Photography Festival, the Academy Art Museum, Carroll and Sons, Heiner Contemporary, and Jen Bekman Gallery.

Aside from making pictures, I spend a lot of time teaching photography... I've taught at George Washington University's Corcoran College of Art and Design, Maryland Institute College of Art, Semester at Sea, and St. Mary's College of Maryland.

I studied biology and visual arts at Bowdoin College and photography at School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and I have a Masters degree from J.E. Purkyně University. I was also an artist-in-residence at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, the Artist's Enclave at I-Park, and Maryland Hall for Creative Arts and a 2008 Fulbright Fellow in Mongolia.
