“This exhibition is the result of a sabbatical leave in the Spring of 2011. It began with a trip to Florida and in that month, two trips to Payne’s Prairie, south of Gainesville. I took long walks, with my camera, along raised earth paths with dredged canals that were populated with many alligators and species of large birds. Despite having the reputation of being a national park with the most Apex predators, it has a subtle beauty that challenged me to slow down, observe, and find new rhythms.”
