By way of Will Knipscher I came to see the work of Stephen Chalmers’ series Dump Sites as well as Joel Sternfeld’s On This Site.

Both reflect the sense of place and truth in a way I’m trying to, as well as the quality of light they are able to capture.

Also, in an interview about his new series Out There, Christian Patterson discusses the idea of the phantom event, something heavily considered in my image making process:

I have long been fascinated with and inspired by phantom events—events that have little or no physical presence in a place or an image but have a very strong relationship with the place that is photographed. The resulting images focus on the quiet, spatial context and emotional energy of a place. I feel that these images exhibit a certain otherness—a sense of what was, or what could have been.
