Project Statement


The Parks is a photography project about the interaction between humans and nature in America’s National & State Parks.

This project attempts to employ a humanistic lens, by intimately capturing human moments in nature. Furthermore, these photos attempt subvert the idealized landscape of the American West by showing the realities of the space – tourists, kids, buses, selfie sticks, strollers. 

This project is a documentation of the people and the landscape.
How do they interact? What does this say about human’s relationship with the natural world? Can modern life’s meaning be found at the end of a selfie stick?
