Description: Today’s newspapers are full of issues that are not easily photographed. Mortgage backed securities, collateralized debt obligations, robosigning, the European debt crisis, SOPA, and interest rates. How can photography be used to communicate what’s happening in a world where current events are becoming increasingly abstract?
I moved to California about two years, and the west coast still seems like a strange place to me. The sunlight is different here, and I don’t know the names of any of the trees. These are from an ongoing project where I try to make sense of the foreign environment I ended up in.
Description: Open to interpretation.
