In this project, I look at the various aspects of a place- natural history, architecture, cultural relics, religion, individuals-- and the connections between and within these elements. Although this series is centered around my home states in the American south and midwest, I want to emphasize the continuity of certain themes both within and across geography. Displaying these images as diptychs puts them in a context, creating a connection that relates places to one another and also emphasizes their uniqueness.
