We, humankind, may think we have dominance over nature, but our buildings, our streets, our “dominance” must be maintained to exist. If left untended, nature’s methodological reclamation shows us that our footprint on the earth is more tentative than permanent. When confronted with our manufactured landscapes, what do we see? Will we end up as lonely conquerors; or merely as past occupiers, our presence detectable by the rusted artifacts of our reign? Whatever the answer, the camera captures the beauty of the rust and the decay: the work of nature reclaiming our footprint for her own.
