Emergence / Return Project

Over a 20 year period I made annual trips to the Maya areas of Central America, including Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and Belize. Working as a documentary photographer, I photographed the ruins of over 30 archeological sites and ancient ceremonial centers. The project Emergence/Return evolved out of this work when I began to blend photographs of the contemporary Maya with imagery carved in stone by their ancestors. In addition to print photography, the project has expanded into other media, including video, photo-sculpture and installation.   A signed, limited edition book is due in May 2018.
