Artists Statement on Reciprocity
We met over a dozen years ago when we were both darkroom photography students. As our lives and work developed alongside one another’s, we have both explored the dichotomy of the natural vs. artificial and the implications of human interference with nature. Mankind already possesses the technology and power necessary to coexist with nature and to provide the refuge that the two of us have already found within her.
