The power of water is beautifully demonstrated in the slot canyons of Arizona, where the rocks are carved into dramatic shapes and then illuminated by the distant sun. In this composition, I aim to defamiliarize the natural contours of these canyon walls, yet paradoxically bring out their curvilinear essence through creative tension between the representational and the abstract. Employing the vehicles of symmetry and superposition, I take my photographs and use these canyon curves to create my own composition; one that conjures up a new world, yet still evokes the memory of that mystical experience of traversing the canyon. When will I return?
