The Green Diaries

These are the places I found solace in a meeting with wildness. I’ve lived in this Southern landscape with my chosen family since 2004 and I’ve had to search and stretch my seeing to find true wilderness. Almost every place is interrupted very recently by a human hand, I think, in an effort to speed up change as if more infrastructure is the answer, in this land of ghosts, this land drenched in blood and hatred. Progress doesn’t erase memory that’s for sure.

These images are a collection of photographs from 2009-2013. They were taken around Memphis in Shelby County as well as 3 driving hours out in different directions. Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas.
