"Terrestrial Tender" is a collection of photos I took in Iceland during a summer study abroad course in 2015. For this project, which was exhibited in Oakland's College Avenue Galleries in February 2016, I paired these images with poems that explore the relationship between the island's ethereal geography, Icelandic folklore, and the concept of the Anthropocene.

I'm incredibly fascinated by glaciers; they are breathtaking & magical earthly creations, and a vital natural resource for our planet. Included in this collection are close-up images of three distinct glaciers that I've explored: Perito Moreno Glacier--one of many glaciers fed by the massive Southern Patagonian Ice Field--located in Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina; Snæfellsjökull--a frozen stratovolcano that looks like a giant cloud of ice--on the Snæfellsnes peninsula in western Iceland; and Mýrdalsjökull--an ice cap coated with ash mounds that also rests upon a volcano--located in the south of Iceland near Vík í Mýrdal.
Various photographs of various plants in Colorado, California, Bolivia, and Chile.
Because of my infatuation with animals, I naturally have a ton of photos of them. Included in these images are cows & dogs from my time WWOOFing in the Lakes District of Chile, monkeys from the animal refuge I volunteered at in Bolivia, a stray pig strolling along the shores of Lake Titicaca, and, of course, my majestic Great Pyrenees/Australian Shepherd mix, Daisy.

Images depicting the various wonders of water / salt. Shorelines, from my perspective, take on many forms: glacial lagoons, salt flats, black pebble beaches, waterfalls-- stretched across oceans, rivers, ice fields, and deserts around the world.
