DESCRIPTION: Photography, Unframed, Color Photograph

ARTIST STATEMENT: For the past 15 years, my art making practice has explored an essential aspect of human nature and the desire to create a more perfect society. I am particularly interested in communes founded in the 1960s. In my collaged photographs, I combine photographs I took at three communes that were started in the 1960s and still exist today. The Farm in Tennessee, Alpha Farm in Oregon and Black Bear Ranch in California with archival photographs from these communities in the 60s and 70s.
