Ring Mountain

Ring Mountain is in Northern California but it could be anywhere. It sits atop a subduction zone where two massive forces, the Pacific Plate and North American continent are actively colliding. It is a location who's position is never fixed.

Once a ritual site for local native cultures, a military missile defense platform, it is home to rare indigenous plants, endangered animals and surrounded by the constant development of the second wealthiest zip code in the US. It is a landscape who's identity is in constant flux and threat of change.

This ongoing project is an exploration into the shifting nature of landscape identity, place and meaning, strata of memory and cultural geography. The images here are made using a medium format film camera and digital tools.
