I had a dream that I woke up to a world devoid of people; all that remained was an overpowering stillness. Wandering through the landscape my voyeuristic eye searched for signs of presence; everyday objects, structures and spaces all became artifacts of civilization.  These mundane object and spaces became

monuments of the past; proof of our very existence.

 

The photographic series, Deposition explores the landscape as a site of culture. Devoid of people the landscape becomes a reminder of our fragile relationship with the landscape. Taken out the continuity of time the images they become a window to contemplate contemporary culture. Furthermore, the landscape is a memento mori; a reminder of our fleeting and ever so delicate relationship with the landscape.
