Between the Lines Contemporary photography.
Taken over the course of a single day spent near Shaver Lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains, this series cuts between images of forest and hills in the bright sun of midday and the moldering interior of a dam control room. Photographed from outside the building through its barred windows, the interiors take on an eerie quality. Reflections layer over reflections in these images, shadows of pine trees creep across walls, the interlaced pattern of the bars hovers ghostlike on the surface, the brilliant warmth of the outside world casts a rusty hue across the room, all serving to acceuntuate the out of time quality of this place. For me this juxtaposition implies a certain clandestine decay. The glory of the sundrenched mountains and forest as stalked by a creeping, ghastly stillness.
