The Superfund was set up in 1980 by Congress. It was created to pay for the cleanup of some of our countries most hazardous waste sites. Some of these sites have been successfully rehabilitated and are now nature preserves and parks, while some are still surrounded heavily by barbed wire fences with large menacing signs warning of the dangers within.
I am drawn to the landscape that now defines these sites, what they used to be and the ways in which they have been altered over time. These photographs serve to explore and exploit these sites by using technology to expose what is unseen by the human eye. I seek to question environmental actions of both the past and present, how it has evolved and its effect on our society and land.
