Windows and Trees/Mountain of Ash

These pictures are from a group I've mentally labelled as Windows/Trees, even though that is probably a misnomer. The initial images from this group are a picture I took in LA, immediately after the wildfires in the Spring, and a subsequent picture taken in Long Island, of landscape and houses seen through a break in some trees. This went on to inform most of process this summer, which involved sneaking around in suburban parks which border immediately next to people's houses, and photographing through the woods. The effect is not exactly voyeuristic, though there are some elements of that. Rather, they become a bit more about alienating from the domesticity of suburban living, similar, I feel, to what I'm trying to say with my night photography. There are also images of both the discoveries within the park, where nature comes so close to humanity, and scans from the burned park. Arguably, the burning of the park is where humanity comes too close to nature.
