Artist Statement

Control is an ongoing series observing the infrastructure used to extract, conserve, and ultimately control water. It is preoccupied with vast landscapes manipulated to facilitate mass consumption of water at the turn of a tap.

The series was shot on a 4x5 large-format camera during summer of 2012-13 in the AndalucĂ­an Basin in regional Spain and regional Tasmania, Australia. These locations were chosen for waterways that have been diverted on an awe-inspiring scale, to majestic yet unsettling effect. The colour photographs are rendered with striking clarity of detail.
